  1. Poor people line up. Get your blood work get your numbers your. Fellow the psa is a must. Rass Alexander I have to break ranks with you on this felllows check your prostate check the eyes very important. Lucian’s we done know how it going already especially poor people who can’t fly out.

  2. I say to all, please do take advantage of this Freewill offering by the ‘Red Cross Ship.
    Too many of my friends who I grew up with in St.Lucia have died due to lack of the
    necessary funds to take care of their health. If you refuse today, they may never return again.

  3. Do not allow them to infect you. They come here to infect us with diseases as part of their experiments. Do not trust them. Ask questions! Don’t be forced into anything!.

  4. It is people like you – “Just saying” – I would hate to have in anything to do
    with the progress of this poor Island. what you have said there is read by others
    in a position to help. You ignorance is really bliss, and next time think first before you write.

    • Ur ignorant of what the US has done in the past on similar medical aid campaigns. “People” like you should read a book before coming on the internet to run chat with the big boys. Fool.

  5. #the fox is right. If you dont want go then dont go. But to discourage people about something you dont know. This is mischievous and foolish. Shows how little you know.
