The 2018/2019 Budget has come in for close scrutiny from advocacy group, Raise Your Voice St.Lucia.

President Catherine Sealys says the Budget lacked focus and did not speak to the real issues facing the common man on a daily basis.

According to her, the Budget presentation created confusion among vulnerable groups.

Healthcare Sealys says remains a critical problem in the Country. The delays in opening the St.Jude’s Hospital in its rightful home she argues poses serious threats to residents of the South.

Catherine Sealys has indicated that Raise Your Voice St.Lucia will in the coming months lead the charge on drawing national attention to such crucial matters.
