Nouvelles en bref

11-01-16– On Tuesday November 1st, 2016, a group of 25 university students visited Port-a-Piment in a show of solidarity with its residents. Port-a-Piment has been one of the hardest areas hit by the hurricane Matthew.

The students were led by Dr Ernst (Enso) Jean Joseph, Director of the State University Student Life Division.

Their mission was to deliver some hurricane relief supplies such as tarps, buckets to the residents and to perform preventive spraying for mosquito larvae throughout the town. They also took the opportunity to enjoy a 20 minute soccer exhibition game with the local soccer club which received some soccer balls.
