PRESS RELEASE: The Department of the Public Service has been saluted by the Saint Lucia Blind Welfare Association (SLBWA) for undertaking the noble act of giving to the non-profit organization, a cheque of $605.05 on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.

The presentation was made during a special ceremony to mark the close of Public Service Day Activities at the Finance Administration Center, in Pointe Seraphine.

Representative of the St. Lucia Blind Welfare Association, Mrs. Debora Pamphile- McLean thanked the Public Service for this singular act of generosity.

“On behalf of the SLBWA, I would like to thank you. The blind and visually impaired will be the beneficiaries of this support and so it is nice to know that they are being thought of and the work of the SLBWA has not gone un-noticed. We continue to make the call to the public to give of your time, talent or treasure and we will very much appreciate whatever you can give.”

The Saint Lucia Blind Welfare Association is slowly recovering from a hard-hitting financial crisis which saw the organization scaling back on its staff complement and services earlier this year.

  1. What a shame! While we can leave 25 million for Sandals, 6 millions for Ojo labs, millions from passport sales with foreigners, our blind people must depend on hand outs.
