Youth arm of United Workers Party donates school items to underprivileged children

Press Release

 Share This On:

On Wednesday,  September 4, 2013, the youth arm of the United Workers Party (United Youth) hosted a small ceremony at the headquarters of the UWP where the youth presented parents and children with hampers containing various items intended to assist some youth as they return to school.

The contents of these hampers included school shoes, school bags, text books, notebooks, exercise books and an array of stationary. United Youth was also able to give each child a second hamper containing snacks, juice, milk and bottled water.

The youth were able to obtain the items given to the children largely with the assistance of donations from the general public. With the public’s assistance, we were able to assist 21 children from across the island.

United Youth intends to make this an annual event and we wish to encourage all citizens of Saint Lucia to assist those who may be less privileged than ourselves if we are in a position to do so. We would like to extend most heartfelt gratitude to all the persons and business places including the following  for their support and for making this initiative a success.

Mr. Earl Lewis of Cosmopolitan Bar

  2. Sorry but why not, St.Lucia will always be politics, political parties run the election & form the government, want it or not for now we will always see yellow & red in our eyes in St.Lucia. So anything good or bad done by the sitting government will politics for the people.
