Dennery North MP Shawn Edward has confirmed that relief supplies have reached the Mabouya Valley ‘after much lobbying.’
Edward gave the confirmation in a message Saturday on the official Facebook page of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) with accompanying photographs.
“After much LOBBYING, Nemo supplies finally reached the Mabouya Valley. The Dennery North Disaster Management Committee will distribute packages tomorrow Sunday 5th April, 2020,” the Dennery North MP wrote.
“Thanks to all who made it happen! “Going all out for my people all the time,” Edward declared.
The MP has earlier complained that his constituency had received ‘absolutely nothing’ in regard to relief supplies from the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO), although thousands of packages had been distributed in communities across Saint Lucia.
“Good morning Shawn…good job.love you for looking out for our people in the valley..keep up the good works..I know you and the people with you is taking a big risk..please be safe all of you,” wrote James Martyr in response to the MP’s Facebook post.
Lucia James on the other hand, posted an image of a cartoon character applauding.
