United States Government Donates Medical Supplies To Saint Lucia

spot_img

Saint Lucians now have access to more medical equipment, thanks to the generosity of
the United States Government.

Through the Denton program, administered by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the shipment arrived on the island on June 1 on board a military aircraft.

In addition to medical equipment, theDenton shipment also contained education, construction material, and hygiene supplies which will be distributed to a number of nursing homes, health clinics, and hospitals on the island.

The Good News Projects, which is based in Wisconsin in the United States, donated all
the supplies to this shipment, which was then facilitated by the United States
Government, through USAID.

The total cost of this shipment was approximately USD$30,000.

The Denton Program allows private U.S. citizens and organizations to use space available on U.S. military planes and vessels to transport humanitarian goods, such as clothing, food, medical and educational supplies, agricultural equipment and vehicles, to countries in need.

The program is jointly administered by USAID, the Department of State (DOS), and the Department of Defense (DOD).

  1. THAT IS WHAT LUCIA NEEDS , IF THAT EVER HAPPEN YOU WILL SEE IF PEOPLE WILL NOT BEHAVE THEMSELVES. CRIME WILL TAKE A BACK SEAT TRUST ME.

  2. @Stinger – totally agree about Tapion. Incompetent service especially in emergency situations, and they won’t treat people until they cough up de money. That of course means only certain people can access treatment if you could call it that. Where is that US aid actually going? Public or Private??
