In some cases, the urgent need to travel overseas for medical attention may be the individual’s first time traveling outside of St. Kitts and Nevis. When required and/or requested, we provide further assistance to the family in a range of areas from as simple as providing winter clothing donations to cost associated with travel for visa applications and to organizing accommodations bookings or emotional support.

All funds raised by PALS are paid directly to suppliers, be it medical institutions, airlines, hotels or other institutions.
