The Falkland Islands government had made donations to Uruguayan and Chilean Covid-19 charitable organizations that support Covid victims in the two countries. The decision was agreed this week by the Standing Financial Committee and involved 5,000 pounds to each of the organizations in the two South American neighbors.

Likewise a donation of 10,000 pounds for the Food Bank was made to the John Cheek Trust.

Elected lawmaker MLA Ian Hansen stressed that although it is called a Food Bank, the system is more encompassing and does not just provide food aid.

Committee members also agreed the budget for the Falklands Landholdings which includes no support from government. The Committee were told that FLH currently has 2,5 times its annual operating budget in reserves, and is therefore able to use those reserves to fund the 2020/21 budget.

    How much was donated to BA?
    Maybe a couple of those recovered land mines from Gypsy Cove along with an invoice for all the removals.

    RB - I do not believe that BA is in either Uruguay or Chile.
