These include the Joseph N France General Hospital, St Christopher Children’s Home, The Cardin Home, and the Department of Social and Community Development. The mattresses were from the 2,758-passsenger Carnival Victory, which makes weekly visits to St. Kitts as part of its seven-day schedule from San Juan.
The donation was made possible through the generosity of Carnival Cruise Lines in its continued effort to give back to and support the communities that so warmly welcome its ships and support its business. All services and costs related to the storage and delivery of the mattresses were donated by Delisle Walwyn & Co. Ltd.
The representatives of the various recipient organizations expressed their appreciation on behalf of the people and communities they serve. Ms. Azilla Clarke, Director of Social and Community Development, Government of St Kitts and Nevis thanked Carnival Cruise Lines and Delisle Walwyn & Co. Ltd. for the kind donations, which she indicated, would be put to good use by the various organizations and individuals who receive support and assistance from the Department of Social and Community Development.
Newly appointed Business Development Manager at Delisle Walwyn & Co. Ltd., Mrs. Youlouca Armony-Browne, presented the donation on behalf of Carnival Cruise Lines and Delisle Walwyn & Co. Ltd. and underscored their continued commitment to social and community development in St Kitts and Nevis.
She also highlighted the importance of the partnerships with cruise lines such as Carnival Cruise Lines, which are geared toward affording cruise passengers the opportunity to experience the high quality tourism product that St. Kitts and Nevis has to offer while advancing the development of a sustainable cruise tourism industry in the Federation.
