Pawa­sol Pour Ti Ma­mai

The Star (St. Lucia) - - CLASSIFIED -

Pawa­sol pour ti ma­mai or chil­drens um­brella group, was reg­is­tered as a char­ity in Septem­ber 2007 and since then has helped over 550 chil­dren in pay­ing for them to have op­er­a­tions and to fly abroad for med­i­cal treat­ment; we have bought med­i­ca­tions and spe­cial equip­ment and paid for school­ing, uni­forms, books, trans­porta­tion, lunches and both ex­am­i­na­tion and reg­is­tra­tion fees. Books have been pur­chased for both the Mi­coud li­brary and the Den­nery pre school. Stu­dents of care have had their train­ing funded and we have helped nu­mer­ous other or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing the St. Lu­cia Cri­sis Cen­tre, CGDC, St. Lu­cia Blind Wel­fare, Grow­ell, Up­ton Girls Con­vent, and the Dun­not­tar School, in var­i­ous ways.

We raise money by sell­ing at flea mar­kets, or­gan­is­ing tombo­las, hold­ing lunch func­tions, quiz nights, spon­sored walks and print­ing and sell­ing of cook­books, cal­en­dars and greet­ing cards and have, up to the end of 2014, raised over $450,000ec. Ev­ery cent of this has been spent on the chil­dren as this char­ity has no ad­min­is­tra­tive costs as ev­ery­thing is done by vol­un­teers.

On Palm Sun­day Pawa­sol held a pirate and easter egg hunt on board the pirate ship "the pearl' which was a great suc­cess with 200 par­ents and chil­dren at­tend­ing for a fun filled af­ter­noon. Prizes were given to the chil­dren who found the most eggs and also the best dressed girl and boy.

All pro­ceeds went to the char­ity to fur­ther as­sist chil­dren with med­i­cal and ed­u­ca­tional needs.

Any per­sons wish­ing to join our or­gan­i­sa­tion are most wel­come - membership forms are avail­able.
