Lo­cal Ho­tel Do­nates to Fire Vic­tims

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Fire vic­tims of the West Hall Group area, in the con­stituency of Vieux Fort South, ben­e­fit­ted from a do­na­tion of fur­ni­ture and elec­tri­cal sup­plies from The Land­ings Re­sort Saint Lu­cia. This was the se­cond such do­na­tion by The Land­ings Re­sort, the first of which con­sisted of food, cloth­ing and clean­ing sup­plies.

The do­na­tion was made to mem­bers of the com­mu­nity whose homes were razed to the ground on Mon­day 27th July, 2015. A to­tal of five struc­tures were de­stroyed, leav­ing six fam­i­lies home­less.

Dur­ing a visit to the af­fected fam­i­lies last year, Prime Min­is­ter Dr. Kenny An­thony called upon the en­tire cit­i­zenry to as­sist in kind to­wards the fire vic­tims: “This is a dis­tress­ing time for them. They are home­less and are be­ing ac­com­mo­dated in other homes. They have lost ev­ery­thing: clothes, fridges, stoves, beds so they are go­ing to need as much help as pos­si­ble.”

The re­lief ef­forts are be­ing co­or­di­nated by the Na­tional Vol­un­teer Or­ga­ni­za­tion in the Of­fice of the Prime Min­is­ter. This dis­sem­i­na­tion of fur­ni­ture sup­plies oc­curred on Wed­nes­day March 16, 2016
