Coreas Distribution Limited (CDL), one of the newest companies in St. Vincent and the Grenadines is joining the fight to clean up Kingstown and to get rid of the aedes aegypti mosquito, the vector that spreads dengue and Zika.

The staff of the company, a former Division of Coreas Hazells Inc., will on Saturday (tomorrow) set aside their sales and marketing skills and take-up their water boots, rakes and shovels to clean up the river located along North River Road.

The employees will collect all the garbage in the river from the areas of Block 2000 down to the sea at Rose Place.

Chief Executive Officer of CDL, Jimmie Forde said that the staff of CDL feels a sense of responsibility to assist in the clean-up of the environment to aid in the eradication of these dangerous mosquitos.

An outbreak of Zika will seriously affect the productivity of our labour, Forde said.

Forde also said that everyone has a role to play in keeping St. Vincent and the Grenadines clean and avert averting a major medical crisis.

He appealed to the public to be more responsible with the disposal of their garbage and urge the other members of the business community to join the fight to clean up our environment.

  1. Thank You Coreas!
    Too bad it will do little to stop the mosquito. It may slightly help lessen the danger but once the threat is here, it will always be here. Great that they are cleaning all the garbage. We Vincentians seem to hate our country, that is why we fill it with garbage, especially the streams. What is wrong with us?

      Lostpet, if you thank Coreas while damning your own people (surely not for hating our country which is actually not true — this is a more complicated issue than you think), does this mean that you excuse the ruling regime and its government from cleaning the drains, rivers, gutters, and beaches of our fragile homeland as they are expected and required to do?
