VIEUX SUCRIEUX WATER PROJECT IS COMPLETE.

In 2022, Vieux Sucrieux, Gros – Islet became the latest community to get connected to a reliable potable water supply.

In 2017, the Saint Lucia Social Development Fund (SSD) was successfully able to access the BNTF grant which was used to design and install the infrastructure needed to supply safe drinking water to Vieux Sucrieux homes.

In a report dated March 14, Astra Zeneca has indicated that safety is of paramount importance and the company is continually monitoring the safety of its vaccine. After a review of all available safety data of more than 17 million people vaccinated in the European Union and UK with COVID-19 vaccine, Astra Zeneca has shown no evidence of an increased risk of pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis or any blood clotting disorders in any defined age group, gender, batch or in any particular country.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) said it is aware that as a precautionary measure, a few countries in the European Union have suspended use of a specific batch of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. The World Health Organisation emphasizes that “the vaccine’s benefits continue to outweigh its risk, and the vaccine can continue to be administered while investigation of cases of thromboembolic events is ongoing.”
