Gov’t Helping Stranded Students

THE Government of Saint Lucia, through the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Security has over the past weeks undertaken measures to secure the safety and health of approximately 76 individuals suspected to be victims of human trafficking.

According to the Government Information Service, the government is providing accommodation and support for 44 of these individuals.

GIS said the Ministry of Health is providing counselling and other health-related services, while agencies such as the St. Lucia Red Cross, CARITAS, NEMO, the New Beginnings Transit Home and the Ministry of Commerce, have also provided assistance.

A task force responsible for monitoring human trafficking has been activated and will continue to monitor developments.

The Government of Saint Lucia is also collaborating with the International Organization of Migration (IOM) to bring a resolution to this matter.

The students from Nepal and the Phillipines were left stranded after operators of a school in Gros Islet where they were studying, were arrested on charges of human trafficking.
