Saint Lucia Frontline Workers COVID19 Response

Dear Friend of Saint Lucia,

As we in Saint Lucia – along with the world – cope with the COVID-19 crisis and look toward brighter days. Today, we reach out to you – as a friend of Saint Lucia – to ask if you would be willing to make a donation to our SUPPORT SAINT LUCIA campaign. With your help, 100% of donated funds will directly assist our most affected citizens with food and critical supplies and our frontliners who are working tirelessly in the fight against COVID-19.

In Saint Lucia, the majority of our citizens depend upon the economic benefit of tourism, through the hundreds of thousands of visitors that we welcome each year. COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on our economic stability – creating shortages and limited access to critical and life-sustaining supplies such as food and PPE (gloves, masks, shields and gowns).

Since April 1, we have been working with local partners on sweeping measures to ensure that Saint Lucians have their basic needs met, distributing more than 10,000 emergency care packages with necessities including vegetables, fruit, hygiene items, baby supplies and non-perishables. Efforts continue daily, as volunteers carefully manage limited safety protocols while performing the urgent work needed to provide supplies to each home. But as an island community where tourism means everything, we seek your help in this time of crisis.

At this time, we are observing strict quarantine measures and a national scale down as directed by the Ministry of Health.

Saint Lucia remains actively committed to the health and wellness of our locals, who are eager to welcome back visitors when the time is right.

Thank you in advance for your compassion and support.
