The Consulate General of Saint Lucia in New York has announced that a distressed Saint Lucian woman living in New York City has reconnected with her family.

On its Facebook page, the Consulate said the reconnection occurred thanks to Saint Lucians at home and abroad and one particular individual.

The Facebook post identified that individual as Saint Lucian Jeanin Jules, an MTA employee.

The post disclosed that Jules, who works at the train station in the Bronx, encountered Ms. Anne Anthony there twice.

“During the second encounter on March 4, Ms. Anthony informed Ms. Jules that she is a Saint Lucian and was interested in connecting with her family, but did not have the means,” the Consulate related.

It said Jules offered to take the woman’s photograph and share it on social media, hoping someone would recognise her.

Based on the information Jules provided, the Consulate General successfully located Anthony’s relatives in the United Kingdom.

The Consulate said the relatives indicated they last heard from Anthony in February of last year and had been trying unsuccessfully to locate her.

On March 5, Jules reencountered Anthony at the train station and notified the authorities to ensure the woman received appropriate care.

The authorities, in turn, transferred Anthony to a nearby hospital for medical attention.

Thereafter, her family and Saint Lucia’s Consul General Jeremiah Hyacinth received information regarding the hospital admission.

As a result, Hyacinth visited Anthony in the hospital and indicated the woman appeared to be doing well.

He also confirmed that her family was arranging to travel to the United States to reunite with her.

The Consulate General of Saint Lucia in New York expressed sincere appreciation to Ms. Jeanin Jules for her ‘thoughtful acts of kindness’.

It also thanked everyone who played a role in finding Ms. Anthony.
