  1. His Worship is "contented" with the many donations? Where's the Parliamentary Representative for Castries Central, Mrs. Beaubrun? What happened to her? Will she give the homeless of Rose Hill a handful of corn seed? Must we rely on charity in such a catastrophe? Where are our elected representatives? Our "government?"

  2. Thank you salvation armys.
    Keep up the Good Works.
