The Saint Lucia Labour Party Administration has kept yet another promise to provide financial support for “differently- abled” children.

The Grant Fund for Children with Disabilities, which was first announced by Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, in the 2013/2014 Budget Statement, was launched on Wednesday, June 4, 2014, in Vieux Fort.

Under this Programme, the Government of Saint Lucia will grant $200.00 per child, to assist parents with medical, educational and other general expenses associated with the care of their “differently- abled” children.

In his address at the launch of the program, Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Anthony recognized the tremendous sacrifice that is made on a daily basis by parents and teachers of children with special needs.

The Prime Minister said while he knows $200.00 is insufficient to meet all of the needs of the special children, it is a start.
