The Ministry for Equity, Social Justice and Empowerment has once again handed over the proceeds from the Collection at the National Ecumenical Service, held in celebration of Saint Lucia’s 44th Anniversary of Independence, to a charitable institution.

Minister with responsibility for Ecclesiastical Affairs Hon. Joachim Henry, presented the
proceeds of the Collection to officials of the Saint Lucia Cancer Society, to aid in efforts
at fighting the dreaded disease that has claimed the lives of thousands of Saint Lucians.

Dr. Tamara Remy, Chairperson of the Cancer Society, expressed the organization’s
deepest gratitude for this thoughtful gesture and indicated that the proceeds will go
towards purchasing medication for indigent and vulnerable cancer patients in Saint
Lucia.

Dr. Remy also urged the Ministry to continue its fight for marginalized groups as it will
redound to the benefit of the entire country.

This year’s 44 Independence National Ecumenical Service was held at the Minor
Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on Friday, February 17th , 2023 under the theme
“Douvan Ansanm – One People Shaping Our Destiny”.
