Castries Mayor, Peterson Francis, has said that he is counting on the corporate sector to support an ongoing effort to bring relief to victims of the recent Rose Hill fire.
“Corporate Saint Lucia I am also depending on you,” Francis said in a statement released by his office Monday.
According to the statement, the Mayor has made the Castries Constituency Council (CCC) a drop-off point for donations to victims of the Rose Hill fire.
It quoted the Mayor as urging Good Samaritans who would still like to assist the fire victims to drop off goods at the Castries Constituency Council (CCC) offices located on Peynier Street, Castries.
“Every donation, from clothing, food items, lumber and household items regardless of the size, will make a huge difference to those impacted by the fire,” Francis observed.
The Castries Mayor had recently expressed sadness at the devastation caused by the fire on the first day of the new year to some seven households, particularly children.
