As Saint Lucians remain stoic in the face of the global pandemic, a modest relaxation of some of the government’s Covid-19 safety standards has allowed for a reminder that it is the strength of community that is helping the country remain strong and work towards normalization.
At the NTN TV Studio, representatives of DSH Caribbean Star Limited and the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club were on hand to present a cheque to the government for their support of the national response directed through the Covid-19 Telethon.
Mr. Ng Chee Choy (Project Director, DSH Caribbean Star Limited) and Mr. Ben Walden (Chief Operating Officer, Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club) presented the Hon. Dominic Fedee (Tourism Minister) with a cheque of EC212,031 with all funds directed to the national Covid-19 response.
‘Community’ is a pillar of DSH Caribbean Star Limited and the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club and the unified response to support Saint Lucia’s Covid-19 response from staff and management is testament to an unwavering intent to once again demonstrate this belief.
At the time of the donation the companies issued the following joint statement:
“The Staff and Management of the DSH Group of Companies have organized our own internal fund raising to raise funds for the Saint Lucian frontline personnel as well as government initiatives to care for Saint Lucians who are in need during these extraordinary times brought about by the Covid-19 Pandemic.
“DSH Caribbean Star and the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club are committed to Saint Lucia and its people, we stand shoulder to shoulder with Saint Lucians throughout these testing times and we pray we will draw strength from each other.
Mr. Teo Ah Khing (Chairman)
“On behalf of our staff and group Chairman, Mr. Teo Ah Khing, we are pleased to pledge in the amount of ECD212,031.00 (Eastern Caribbean Dollar Two Hundred Twelve Thousand and Thirty-One) in support of this very worthy cause. Thank you and God bless.”
