With the time drawing near for the preparation of its 2013 Services Directory, LIME has joined with cultural icon Mrs Teresa Hall, the cover personality for the 2012 Directory, in lending a helping hand to the Saint Lucy’s Home and Villa St Joseph.

At a brief presentation on Tuesday at the LIME retail outlet in the Blue Coral Mall in Castries, the two charitable organizations were each presented with a cheque for $1,250 to help them pursue their excellent work. Mrs Hall was instrumental in highlighting the needs of both institutions.

Villa St Joseph provides care and lodging for up to 17 abandoned, sick and elderly citizens in Dennery. The Dominican Sisters who run the home also minister to needy families in the village. The Villa, which adjoins the St Joseph’s Church, is in need of medicines, toiletries, groceries and other supplies.

The Saint Lucy’s Home, located at Marchand, also provides much needed care to poor, elderly and destitute citizens. Over the years LIME has provided the home with various forms of assistance in support of its mission to provide Saint Lucia’s needy and elderly with a life of comfort, loving care and dignity. Earlier this year LIME installed a new eco-friendly fuel cell generator at its cell site in the vicinity of the home to prevent the residents from being disturbed by the noise and exhaust fumes emitted by diesel generators. The latest donation will help to provide the home with much-needed supplies, including groceries and medications.

Sister Teresita, Directress of Saint Lucy’s Home, and Ms Cecilia Augustin, representative of Villa St Joseph, both thanked LIME and Mrs Hall for their generosity.

“LIME is proud to join with Mrs Hall in assisting these two fine organisations,” said LIME Corporate Communications Executive, Terry Finisterre. “As part of our corporate social responsibility, we believe it is our duty to give back by assisting the less fortunate and the elderly. We cannot turn a blind eye. In this global village, we are more and more interdependent, one big family. We must accept that we are our brother’s keeper.”
