Press Release:- The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility collaborated with Carnival Fascination on Thursday, January 24, 2019, to assist with maintenance and beautification works at the Holy Family Children’s’ home in Ciceron.
Last year, the Carnival Corporation announced a series of community projects geared towards supporting children, education and emergency preparedness in the Caribbean. Since then, the corporation has been working with local and international non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) in various countries on community projects tailored to their own Corporate Social Responsibility.
Senior Manager Business Development and Corporate Communications at SLASPA, Gasper George stated “SLASPA’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program is aligned with the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, therefore our collaboration with the Carnival Corporation speaks to the Authority’s commitment in building sustainable cities and communities, to achieve quality education, good health and well-being.
It is envisaged that through initiatives like these SLASPA can work towards further improving the conditions of the marginalized. ”
Hotel Director of Carnival Cruise Line, Dany Petrenko commended the efforts of the Home’s management team, according to him “Praises and congratulations must be given to Sister Anthonia and her team for their wonderful work and dedication in ensuring that each child is shown unconditional love and care.”
In attendance on Thursday were representatives of SLASPA; as well as a crew from the Carnival Cruise Line.
