H.E. Dr. Thelma Phillip-Browne to lobby for support for anti-crime assistance

Basseterre, St. Kitts, April 07, 2016 (SKNIS): St. Kitts and Nevis’ chief diplomat to the United States will join other diplomats from regional countries in lobbying the US government to continue its support of youth at-risk programmes in the Caribbean.

Her Excellency Dr. Thelma Phillip Browne, St. Kitts and Nevis’ Ambassador to the United States, said that the US Department of State gives humanitarian and other types of assistance through its agency for international development (USAID). She said the programmes to promote positive interventions for young people and to deter from crime were particularly attractive for member states of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the smaller Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).
