The cry?for help from the people of St Lucia is being answered by Rotary and the Barbados Red Cross with the local fishing community providing solid support and ensuring six boats carrying 80 tonnes of food reach Castries early Wednesday morning.
Today, six boats – Peacemaker, Skipper, Lady Carmen, Pouch 2, Pouch 5 and Kool Runningz – loaded with a wide assortment of canned food and water – left the Shallow Draught on a mission to help the people of St Lucia who have been dislocated and setback by tropical storm Tomas.
 Jonathan Morgan, the owner of Morgan’s Fishhouse was pleased to play his part.
“This is about the people of St Lucia. Last Thursday, I got a couple of calls from the Rotary and Red Cross to see if I would help again put some boats together to take some supplies to the southern part of St Lucia. I had done it for Grenada with hurricane Ivan with the fishermen coming together and taking down over 100 boat loads of supplies,” he said.
“St Lucia was badly hit. A couple of the boats are going to Soufriere and the other four are headed to Castries. It’s really a worthwhile venture. I know some of the people here were out of electricity and water for a while but we have to go and help our brothers and sisters in St Lucia,” he added.
The supplies contained clothes, sardines, corn beef, and hundreds of other canned food items.
