A new health district just for the Kalinago Territory: that’s what the Hon. Parliamentary Representative for the Salybia Constituency, Casius Darroux has planned for his constituents.
This constituency comprises Sineku, Batacca, St. Cyr, Atkinson, Concord and Salybia.
Speaking at last week’s inauguration ceremony of a senior citizens care group in Salybia, Hon. Darroux explained why the establishment of a new health district is essential for these communities.
There is also a number of other new and ongoing initiatives in the Territory with the elderly in mind.
The Parliamentary Representative revealed that just recently US $100,000 was donated by the Korean Government for the construction of 33 new homes for the senior citizens of his constituency.
The Government of Dominica also made available $300,000 for the construction of a number of washroom facilities in the area.
Hon. Darroux says that a new furniture workshop in the Territory will also dedicate its services to small repairs for senior citizens.
These and a number of other initiatives, the MP says, is indicative of Government’s continued support to the wellbeing of senior citizens on the island.
