SAINT LU­CIANS IN CANADA AS­SIST YOUNG OR­PHAN

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Prime Min­is­ter and Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Vieux Fort South, Dr. Kenny D. An­thony joined Vieux Fort mayor, Wi­nall Joshua, for a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony at the Vieux Fort South Con­stituency Coun­cil Of­fice on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 20, 2015.

Born in Vieux Fort in 2004, Hos­sein Con­stan­tine had lost his mother by his first birth­day. In early 2015, his fa­ther passed away as well. The soon-to-be 11-year-old has been taken in by his aunt and grand­par­ents, with whom he lives at Bruce Ville.

Cog­nizant of the unan­tic­i­pated bur­den that Hos­sein’s fam­ily would be fac­ing at this time, Mayor Joshua or­ches­trated a fundrais­ing ef­fort to sup­port the young man, who will be en­ter­ing Grade 6 at Plain View Com­bined when school re­opens in Septem­ber.

To help Hos­sein’s guardians pro­cure books, uni­forms and sup­plies, Joshua and his wife, Chris­tine, ral­lied a num­ber of Saint Lu­cian cit­i­zens res­i­dent in Toronto, Canada, who con­trib­uted the equiv­a­lent of EC$1,328.35 to the re­silient stu­dent.

Joshua and Prime Min­is­ter An­thony pre­sented a cheque in that amount to young Hos­sein in a brief cer­e­mony. Dur­ing the course of that cer­e­mony the young man, who is also a fine singer, pledged to con­tinue giv­ing of his best in school to hon­our his late par­ents.
