Press Release:-  In February 2021, the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice, Local Government and Empowerment distributed four hundred (400) food packages to beneficiaries of the Child Disability Grant and Persons Living with HIV/AIDS.

This initiative constitutes part of the government’s recovery and resilience strategies that form part of the national response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Ministry is grateful for the level of collaboration with its corporate private sector partners to date, and is particularly appreciative of the generous donations received – in this instance, a cheque of Forty-Five Thousand, Six Hundred and Thirty Eastern Caribbean Dollars (EC$45,630) from the National Community Foundation which went towards the purchasing of food items for distribution to these four hundred vulnerable households islandwide.

Protecting the poor, marginalized and most vulnerable of the population remains a priority of the Government of Saint Lucia, and while the challenges are beyond Small Developing States like Saint Lucia, it remains resolute in its efforts as it continues to implement programmes such as these.
