Courts do­nates over $30,000 worth of Prod­ucts and Sup­plies as part of An­nual Ini­tia­tive!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The man­age­ment and staff of Courts St. Lucia made true on their prom­ise to pro­vide con­tin­u­ous as­sis­tance to the needy and de­serv­ing around the is­land in time for the sea­son . . . over 30 fam­i­lies were im­pacted.

This ven­ture forms part of con­tin­u­ous ef­forts by the com­pany to im­ple­ment and ex­e­cute mea­sures to aid in the fight against poverty in St. Lucia and across the OECS. The lat­est of such is the rein­tro­duc­tion of the com­pany's Wish-list ini­tia­tive which was launched in 2010 to as­sist those per­sons di­rectly af­fected by Hur­ri­cane To­mas. Since its in­cep­tion, the Courts Wish-list has as­sisted over 100 fam­i­lies in St. Lucia by mod­i­fy­ing and im­prov­ing their cur­rent liv­ing con­di­tions.

An ini­tia­tive such as the Courts Wish-list came at a time when hun­dreds of St. Lu­cians re­lied heav­ily on the sup­port of oth­ers for es­sen­tial daily sup­plies. The level of hu­man­i­tar­i­an­ism dis­played by the well-wish­ers as they wrote to Courts, seek­ing as­sis­tance for help on be­half of a fam­ily mem­ber, a friend or a neigh­bour for the sea­son was heart-warm­ing. This year, over fifty re­quests were re­ceived, all emo­tion­ally charged as they told sto­ries of hard­ships, ob­sta­cles, tri­als; above all, sto­ries of re­silience and per­se­ver­ance as nar­ra­tives and phone calls cap­tured the de­ter­mi­na­tion of per­sons who lived with daily chal­lenges and would be heart­ened by the joy and sur­prise of re­ceiv­ing a gift for Christ­mas.

On Sun­day De­cem­ber 20th, a Courts team com­pris­ing the com­pany's staff and as­so­ciates made the ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated trip to de­liver the items to the re­cip­i­ents as well as de­liv­er­ing ham­pers to the or­phan­ages and el­derly homes in St. Lucia. The crew cov­ered var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties around the is­land head­ing first to Monchy in the north and reach­ing as far as Bruceville in Vieux Fort. The “joy of giv­ing” was in­deed ev­i­dent through­out that trip as re­cip­i­ents al­lowed their grat­i­tude to be man­i­fested in dif­fer­ent ways full of joy and thanks­giv­ing to the per­son who made the re­quest on their be­half to Courts.

Courts St. Lucia would like to of­fi­cially thank the well-wish­ers who wrote to us on be­half of some­one in need; your self­less­ness has not gone un­no­ticed. We thank you for making this ini­tia­tive a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

Courts would like to wish ev­ery­one the very best for the new year.

The Courts Wish-list team brought smiles to the faces of many for

Christ­mas.
