Fire Vic­tims re­ceive much-needed As­sis­tance from Courts

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On 24th Fe­bru­ary, 2015 Saint Lu­cians mourned with the Las­tic Hill com­mu­nity as it came face to face with a tragedy which left six fam­i­lies, com­pris­ing 15 adults and five chil­dren, home­less.

This week as the fam­i­lies try their ut­most to re­cap­ture some level of nor­malcy in their lives, lo­cal fur­ni­ture and elec­tri­cal su­per­store Courts jumped to their res­cue. Courts, upon re­ceiv­ing con­fir­ma­tion from NEMO that most of the vic­tims had se­cured a place to live, hap­pily ar­ranged to fur­nish their homes with much-needed and es­sen­tial fur­ni­ture and ap­pli­ances. Th­ese in­cluded so­fas, beds, re­frig­er­a­tors, chests of draw­ers and dining sets. Each fam­ily re­ceived prod­ucts based on its cur­rent need as high­lighted by the lo­cal NEMO rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Courts is known to have a “Big Heart” be­cause of its in­ter­minable ef­forts to re­duce poverty, pro­vid­ing di­rect as­sis­tance to dis­ad­van­taged fam­i­lies through com­mu­ni­ty­based and sus­tain­able pro­grammes that of­fer the ben­e­fi­cia­ries devel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and a bet­ter qual­ity of life.
