On Monday, Saint Lucia’s Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapter provided financial assistance to the victim of a recent fire at Mongiraud, Gros Islet.

On Wednesday, December 1, the fire destroyed a three-bedroom house measuring 20 feet by 30 feet, leaving Samantha Mc Vane, her five children, a grandchild, and a son-in-law homeless.

Mc Vane said she was grateful for the financial support from the BLM.

“I feel good knowing that there are still people who care about each other,” Mc Vane told St Lucia Times.

She said she is currently living with her grandmother, is in good spirits, and has strengthened her children, whose ages range between 13 and 22, in the aftermath of the tragedy.

“They are happy – they are comfortable,” she explained.

For his part, the interim Chairman of the BLM, Peter ‘Ras Ipa’ Isaac, said the organisation was pleased to undertake the goodwill gesture, especially at this time of the year.

Isaac said the group wants to collaborate with others to undertake similar support ventures in the future.
