Local designers create face masks for sale and donate to OKEU

The Owen King EU Hospital was the recipient of a generous donation of reusable face masks to protect its non-clinical staff as work to fight the spread of COVID-19.

Corporate St. Lucia alongside private individuals made donations amounting to over 1,500 reusable face masks specifically for the non-clinical staff of the Owen King EU Hospital.

Executive Director at the Hospital, Nancy Francis said the hospital is extremely grateful for the donations made by The Tribe of Twel and Landmark Events, the Sewing Centre, Lorraine Francois and Althea Emmanuel.

With the recent protocol from the Ministry of Health and Wellness requiring everyone to wear masks out in public, coupled with the limited supply of N95 masks, Medical Director at OKEU Hospital, Dr. Alisha Eugene-Ford welcomed the donation of reusable masks for the non-clinical members of staff.

Other designers have been hard at work producing facemasks for the general public among them Lisa Barton of De Kloze Line 720-2682 and Sharon Tanner at 715-3018
