By Aaron Humes: The 37 residents of King’s Children Home in Cotton Tree village, just outside Belmopan, have been encouraged to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord” using the donation of musical instruments and particularly Stretton brand guitars donated by suppliers Westrac Limited.

Also thrilled is the Home’s Program Manager, Paul Cassanova: “Definitely it will help to boost the kids’ morale. Apart from the pandemic, you know that these kids are here more enclosed; and so to have music added to what they’re doing, learning music and playing music, singing and so on, really occupies their time positively.”

Cassanova, a converted Christian, says he grew up without a father and lived mostly with his grandmother, so he had to make his own way in the world. He was inspired to take up the cause of children traumatized in their lives and offer his support to love, live and give.

Though it requires much “energy and patience,” Cassanova says his reward is the children’s stabilization, self-confidence, and worth, the realization that their problems will not deter personal success, leading to their transition to adult life and successes abroad and locally.

That has largely not been deterred by the pandemic despite the financial bite the Home has incurred, but it has tried to supplement financial donations with the development of 30 acres of farmland surrounding the home that needs some work and help the children learn a new skill.

According to Westrac’s marketing manager Julian Thiessen, Stretton’s motto is “Everyone Deserves Music” and “we are thrilled to make that as much a reality as possible.”
