A little bit of the story: A terrible fire broke out during the night of September 8, 2009 at St. Jude’s Hospital in Vieux Fort. This hospital is the second largest on St. Lucia and serves the least fortunate people on the island. The hospital was totally destroyed; patients were transported to the Olympic Stadium 2 miles away from the hospital. Now Olympic Stadium which runs as a full hospital has an improvised operating room, emergency room and resuscitation room as well.
Children of the Caribbean Foundation, offers relief and assistance to deserving children across the Caribbean who efforts are geared to resolving the ongoing struggles that children face every single day which include: Poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease and to replace these struggles with hope for a great future.
