Tourism Enhancement Fund Donates to Trough Victims
The Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association (SLHTA), through its Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) and support from its member companies is pleased to advise of the commitment of approximately one hundred thousand dollars worth of support to victims of the tragic 2013 Christmas Eve Trough. With the kind support of Jade Mountain Resort, Serenity Vacations and Tours, Bay Gardens Resorts and Caribbean World Travel Services the TEF has funded infrastructural works, kitchen equipment, administrative, school and student supplies for the Canaries Infant School and its 80 students.
The TEF has also financed the provision of 100 food hampers to the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) for wider distribution, in the hope of making the lives of these victims a bit more comfortable as they continue to adjust to the loss of homes and lives during the regrettable experience. Through closer collaboration with the Ministry of Education, NEMO and other Civil Service Organizations, the SLHTA will continue to conduct such interventions over the coming months.
