"The Essence of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation is blessed and excited to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary during 2019. Launched in July 2009, Essence of Hope is a non-profit organisation geared towards ensuring women (and nowadays even men) never have to suffer at the fate of this horrible disease—cancer. Some of our many goals involve helping women in our Federation by giving free mammograms, offering financial assistance towards post-op treatments and, in some cases, assistance with the costs involved in travelling overseas to receive medical treatment.
One of our signature commemorative activities will be our Tenth Anniversary Gala Dinner, under the theme “A Decade of Helping to Save Lives,” slated for Saturday July 27, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort Ballroom. Our featured speaker will be Mrs Basia Powell, a media personality and international food and travel blogger, based in Atlanta, Georgia. Trinidadian by birth, Mrs Powell is also a breast cancer survivor. She is the co-owner of Basia TV and wife of former West Indies/international cricketer/athlete, Ricardo Powell."
Oualie Beach Resort is proud to donate a two night stay as a giveaway for gala patrons for a value of US$630.

OUALIE BAY, NEVIS (16th May, 2018) – Oualie Beach Resort’s commitment to green operations is well known, but their recent decision to switch to 100% biodegradable and compostable takeaway containers, “T-shirt” bags, and disposable cups, as well as bio-degradable cutlery is a change they hope will spread to other hotels and restaurants throughout the Federation.
Plastic and Styrofoam food service supplies take centuries to break down, and in some cases may never break down at all. This leaves communities with high levels of litter and landfills brimming with these single-use items which often end up polluting our oceans. The supplies that Oualie Beach Resort has sourced, however, that are either made from plant starch and fibers that are fully compostable or contain a microbial additive that accelerates biodegradable breakdown.
Faith Bertie, General Manager of the Resort says “We are proud that Oualie Beach Resort is one of the first hotels in the region to take this important step in reducing waste that is harmful to our environment, and we invite others to do the same.”
The Oualie Beach Resort is a 32 room, family-owned, eco-friendly boutique hotel designed to appeal to travelers seeking a laid-back, personalized experience. The resort never closes and provides all year round employment to all of its 55 staff.
