Monday, March 03, 2003 – On Sunday, twenty-four elderly persons of the Faux -A-Chaux community were presented with gifts of hampers compliments Cable and Wireless and were also treated to lunch and hors d’oeuvres from Sandals La Toc and the Rex St. Lucian Hotel. The event formed part of the island’s 24th Anniversary of Independence activities organised by the Faux -A- Chaux Development Committee. One of the objectives of the Committee is to provide support for senior citizens within the community by way of meals, house repairs, medical care and physical therapy.

Member of Parliament for Castries South Honourable Jon Odlum remarked that a merger between the old and the young is necessary to pave the way for assistance and care of the elderly. The MP took the opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of the Sisters of Mother Theresa of Calcutta who live in the Faux-A-Chaux Community.
