Friday, February 18, 2005 Ė Governor-General, Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy on Thursday, February 17th, 2005, undertook an official visit to the Childrenís Home in Soufriere. The visit coincided with the islandís hosting of a 10-member delegation from the Canada-based, Relief Education and Child Sponsorship (REACH) International.

A charitable organization, REACH International has been assisting children in St. Lucia since 1998. The group arrived on the island on Monday and will be here for six days. While on island, group members, accompanied by Her Excellency, will assist in the refurbishment of the Soufriere Childrenís Home.
