Local Hotel Donates to Fire Victims
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
