The Division of Gender Relations will observe International Men’s Day by hosting a free event. Registration is required.

Saint Lucia will commemorate International Men’s Day tomorrow with an event titled “A Celebration of Men.”

The event will be held under the theme “Appreciating Men’s Leadership and Sacrifice for Family and Country,” and is geared at recognizing and celebrating the achievements of men and boys in St Lucia.

The activities for International Men’s Day, organized by the Division of Gender Relations in the Ministry of Health, include a focus on men’s and boy’s health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality and developing positive male role models. The observance is also an occasion to highlight discrimination against men.

The event will be held at the auditorium of the Wellness Centre on the Millennium Highway, on Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. Men of all ages are invited to attend.

Persons wishing to attend the event are asked to call the Division of Gender Relations at 758.453.0557, or fax at 758.453.0938.
