The Saint Lucia Hospitality & Tourism Association (SLHTA) has issued a call to action to its members, rallying them to support a request from the Saint Lucia National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) for water and other essential supplies for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
SLHTA members have answered the call to action with an outpouring of financial support for water, feminine hygiene products, non-perishable items, and baby supplies for now.
Raising over $50,000 in pledges from members within 24 hours, the Association has already actioned the purchase of over 70 pallets of water for dispatch to the sister isle.
The strategic collaboration with NEMO will facilitate the transfer of the water by sea freight.
SLHTA President, Paul Collymore, applauded members’ generosity during a difficult time for business.
