Saint Lucy’s Home Trans­formed thanks to Courts

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The man­age­ment and staff of one the na­tion's long­est stand­ing homes for the el­derly, Saint Lucy's Home, breathed a sigh of re­lief when Courts St. Lu­cia stepped in to fa­cil­i­tate re­mod­elling work on the in­sti­tu­tion.

Courts made well on its prom­ise to pro­vide di­rect aid to the in­sti­tu­tion as part of the com­pany's on-go­ing Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity projects for 2015. The Saint Lucy's Home has played a fun­da­men­tal role in pro­vid­ing shel­ter and care for the home­less and other marginal­ized per­sons of so­ci­ety, rais­ing the aware­ness of the needs of the poor and de­prived in so­ci­ety whilst pro­mot­ing a sense of to­geth­er­ness and shar­ing within the home and wider com­mu­nity.

Courts has been a con­stant part­ner in the fight against poverty en­gag­ing in var­i­ous projects over the years to help tackle the prob­lem head on. This year, the project at Saint Lucy's Home, one of the many se­lected, is to up­grade the living con­di­tions at the prop­erty mak­ing it more con­ducive to the res­i­dents. The project will cover plumb­ing the en­tire home, up­grad­ing to LED light­ing to save elec­tric­ity costs and re­paint­ing of the en­tire build­ing cost­ing over $25,000. In ad­di­tion to fund­ing the project fully, em­ploy­ees vol­un­teered their time and skills to as­sist with the paint­ing.

Courts St. Lu­cia wishes to thank the board mem­bers and res­i­dents of the Saint Lucy's Home for their co­op­er­a­tion in mak­ing the project a suc­cess. The com­pany also extends sin­cere thanks to its val­ued em­ploy­ees for vol­un­teer­ing their time and skills and plac­ing the needs of the un­der-priv­i­leged above their own.
