A French Navy vessel recently handed over a shipment of relief supplies to the Saint Lucia Red Cross for distribution to individuals affected by the November 6 devastating floods in the North of this country.
The French vessel, which was in Saint Lucia for Remembrance Day activities, offloaded the relief supplies at Port Castries.
PIRAC, the Regional Intervention Platform for the Americas and the Caribbean of the French Red Cross, facilitated the donation.
The President of the Saint Lucia Red Cross, Hubert Pierre, said PIRAC officials contacted him immediately after the flooding regarding disaster aid.
Pierre told St Lucia Times that the local Red Cross received fifty boxes containing hygiene kits, clothing, school books and other items.
He explained that the Red Cross has to support suffering people in Saint Lucia.
“Once people have been impacted at that level, we make sure we do what we have to do and we continue to reach out to Saint Lucians who have been affected,” Pierre explained.
hmmmm they taking most of the items for themselves and their families and giving the affected persons what they want as usual
May the LORD be gracious to us🇱🇨 St-Lucians and make his face shines upon us. For the LORD comforts his people ;and will have compassion on the afflicted ones !!
Please ensure that reliefs are distributing accordingly, because don’t let what happend some years ago, that Martinique sent reliefs,when news reached, that it is one set of familles and favoritisme that got benifits….
Will the French deliver a vessel of hope to us as students nurses from SALCC? It is evident that no hope exists within the department of nursing and by extension SALCC administration.
if you realise there is no hope then you should stop flooding the comments section and just quit the school
@Ma malay – this Student Nurse is on every forum regardless of the topic. I am a little concerned for this Nursing Student……..he or she needs to take their concern to the appropriate agency. Student Nurse you are on every forum with the same issue and it does not help your case….
Nursing School is not easy the subjects are extremely difficult. I am not sure about the curriculum in St. Lucia @ SALCC. However, where I reside there is biology, sciences, anatomy, chemistry, pharmacology, physiology, calculus etc etc. and then there are clinical rotations where you have to conduct medical procedures at varied intervals during the program at medical facilities with Nursing Professors reviewing and assessing your performance. After several years of intense study and meeting all requirements with passing grades – you then need to pass the State Board Exam in order to obtain your license.
Thank you so much for helping St Lucia.
It never fails; notice the Cabinet members in Yellow Red-Cross jackets. Couldn’t that be left for the Red-Cross people to deal with? no, its politics as usual; but make sure every package is checked out for Drugs; the Cabinet should step aside and let the Red-Cross (plus some Cops) handle the situation//sorry forgot, its St. Lucia// & we shall be Blessed Lord. Amen.
