St Lucian cricketer Daren Sammy has donated thousands of dollars’ worth of essential supplies to 23 medical workers from the Saint Jude Hospital in Vieux Fort.
The former West Indies captain saw the sacrifice that these healthcare professionals were making during this time, serving the community during COVID-19, and working long hours. Many of these workers do not have time to go grocery shopping before the curfew and some are working long night shifts.
After receiving this information, Sammy, through the Daren Sammy Foundation, decided to deliver grocery supplies to them at the hospital last Thursday.
Sammy said: “We can all do our part whether it is reaching out to an elderly person in your community or just saying thank you to the many healthcare professionals who are on the front-line.”
The Daren Sammy Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization set up with the aim of assisting the youth of Saint Lucia and develop future champions.
Sammy is a two-time T20 World Cup champion. He was awarded the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and is the only active international cricketer with a national stadium in his name.
