The Media Association of Saint Lucia over the weekend learned of the hospitalization of HTS/Radio 100 Journalist and Presenter Rehani Isidore.
As our colleague continues to fight for his life, our thoughts and prayers are with his immediate and extended family, especially his children and partner, friends, the Management & Staff of HTS/Radio 100, and the wider media fraternity- many of whom are devastated by this situation.
As a media fraternity, we remain thankful for the outpour of support from members of the public and other professional and civil society groups – whether through phone calls, messaging or other means.
Understanding the toll that this has taken on many of our colleagues and members, arrangements are currently being made for counseling to be made available to those affected.
We express heartfelt thanks to the Doctors and Nurses at the Victoria Hospital, who are doing the utmost within their control to ensure that Rehani remains with us.
We understand that rumour and speculation have and will exist, but while we await official word from the relevant authorities ,MASL makes no further statement on the matter.
I ask, that you the general public, continue to keep our colleague, but foremost our friend in your thoughts and prayers on his journey to recovery.
