Saint Lucian born and raised celebrity chef Nina Compton has partnered with The Saint Lucia Hospitality and Tourism Association to raise funds for the Saint Lucia Restaurant sector. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, restaurants in Saint Lucia were closed for most of the past year, with restaurant workers losing their jobs entirely or having to survive on little income. This GoFundMe initiative is created exclusively for Saint Lucia restaurants and their workers to support them in this time of need.
"Born and raised in the beautiful island of Saint Lucia , I am proud of my homeland but COVID had destroyed many industries leaving many jobless, homeless and hungry, raising money will help provide people with the daily necessities as many are in need. Please help The people of Saint Lucia by donating today."
- Nina Compton, Chef Compère Lapin/Bywater American Bistro
"We are so thrilled that Nina has partnered with us on this important initiative. She is a Honorary member of the SLHTA and we have kept her informed about the situation here in Saint Lucia and the challenges our restaurants have been going through"
- Karolin Troubetzkoy, President, SLHTA
