Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre says the government and people of Saint Lucia are grateful to the government and people of the United States for ‘another tangible gesture of friendship and support’ in donating a field hospital and utility vehicles.

The United States donated three vehicles to the Saint Lucia Fire Service.

Regarding the field hospital, Prime Minister Pierre wrote on his official Facebook page that the $1.6 million facility would significantly augment Saint Lucia’s physical health infrastructure, enhance disaster response readiness and enable medical assistance in remote areas.

“But more importantly, at this critical time, it will equip the country with standby capacity to manage any severe virus spike or other emergency,” Pierre observed.

  1. The Hospital Chas started should have continued. Certain moneys was voted on, approved according to ‘Estimated amount’ re: Labour & Material, transportation etc. Contracts were given, men were working, then comes a stoppage, what’s going on? why not complete the job, for heavens sake.

  2. So pip, is this why you wanted chas back on island?
    You were crying for your leader back, because apparently every time chas speaks you have something to say as well. Why did you have to wait for chas to thank the US for you to thank them as well?
    What kinda fig pm is this. Green figs tree grows without anything so why do you need uncle chas to grow
    This is what Lucian’s wanted… hope they’re happy now with their incompetent fig pm
