    SINT MAARTEN (CAY HILL) – The grade 6 class of the St. Maarten Seventh-Day Adventist School (SDA) recently donated play equipment to the pediatric in-patient ward of the St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) and gave existing patio furniture a facelift as part of their community project.

    Every year, the graduating grade 6 class engages in a community project to encourage students to put being good citizens into practice. 

    This year, the grade 6 class chose the pediatric in-patient ward of SMMC. After considering COVID-19 restrictions, they decided to donate a piece of play equipment, which was funded by the class.

    The class also sanded and repainted a piece of patio furniture that many parents, guardians and young patients used during their time admitted to the ward. 

    The class was excited to do this as none of them had the opportunity to paint something before and allowed the exercise to also serve as a learning opportunity.

    “We take this opportunity to say thank you for graciously allowing us to apply what we have been learning theoretically at school, that is, to be good citizens and to emulate God who constantly shares love and kindness with all of us”, said SDA Grade 6 Teacher, Gloria Butcher. https://www.stmaartennews.org

    SMMC thanks the SDA school, especially the grade 6 class and their teacher, Mrs. Butcher for the generous donation that will help make young patients’ time on the ward more pleasant. New Gas Prices St Maarten Up More the Latest

    Gas prices on the International Market continue to rise, consequently, there is a need to have prices change once again. The Last price increase in St. Maarten was on April 11th, 2022.

    The Ministry of TEATT had hoped that by now the fuel relief would have been approved and brought into effect prior to any global increases, given the plight of the people. Unfortunately, this was not possible within the intended time frame and the Ministry could not delay the price change any longer. As such, the price of gas has seen an increase of 47 cents, while the price of Diesel has decreased by 13 cents.

    The Ministries of TEATT, Justice, and Finance are working diligently on implementing the promised relief, which should be forthcoming in the week ahead. https://www.sxmgovernment.com

    The Ministry also wants to remind the public that the price of fuel is influenced by a plethora of factors outside of our control and that as a non-oil producing country, like many others, we will feel the brunt of these external factors. Additionally, when we compare the increase in the USA where the average price has more than doubled, naturally, as an importing country of fuel, the price of fuel will also be affected on the island.

    The Government is cognizant that this increase is a large increase and we are doing everything in our power to prevent such. However, as mentioned previously, given the current level of the World Market Price, we have no choice but to increase the same. We strongly advise persons to be aware of such, adjust their driving habits (I.e. limit speeding as this consumes more fuel, ensure the car is tuned up, drive efficiently (as opposed to back & forth), and/or unnecessary driving. This will assist the amount of times you may have to fill up your tanks.

    In closing, these are challenging times, mainly and especially due to the War in Ukraine (or the Invasion of Russia into Ukraine) and these international developments are beyond our control. We hope and pray that things turn around quickly and that prices return to their normal levels. https://www.stmaartennews.org

    “The meeting with SVB was very fruitful as we were able to discuss and compare details surrounding the basic medical care packages and the upcoming general insurance of Sint Maarten. Naturally, common interest was shared for the sustainability of both country’s health care funds and how we can support each other in the areas that need improvement for our people.” – Mr. Omar Ottley, Minister VSA https://www.stmaartennews.org

    The management of SVB Curaçao shared compliments for SZV’s 2021 Medical Referrals tender process, where international health care facilities would be contracted to expand access to quality medical care for SZV insured. The Ministry of VSA, in collaboration with SZV will follow up on several matters of interest. These include legislative changes to further support the access to voluntary insurance for sole-proprietors and gaps in the current basic medical care package, which could be included in the upcoming general health insurance (GHI).

    The project will finance digital platforms and associated institutional, regulatory reforms to lay the foundations for digital government. Digital government can help citizens receive faster responses to requests, use online payment options, and digitally access public services such as receiving certificates of good conduct, and filing building permits. The business community will also benefit through automating processes, such as economic license acquisition. Access to government services will be available on kiosk machines, an online portal, and mobile applications, which are expected to enhance access, efficiency, and speed of public services. The project will also improve local capacity and assist the Government to recover from disasters, pandemics, and cyber-attacks.

    Working on behalf of the Government of Sint Maarten, the National Recovery Program Bureau (NRPB), will coordinate closely with the Ministry of General Affairs to implement this project. The NRPB’s Director Claret Connor said, “With the help of projects such as this one, in the coming years Sint Maarten will have the means to manage its own digital processes seamlessly. This will greatly enhance the services offered to the community and I hope our private sector will adopt similar advancements, allowing the country to step into the digital future.”

    The establishment of a Digital Leadership Team by Sint Maarten’s Government further underlines the country’s commitment to digital transformation. Femi Badejo, ICT focal point noted that “This project will establish the basis for Sint Maarten to develop digitally through platforms that the country can build on in a modular way.”

    The Sint Maarten Recovery, Reconstruction and Resilience Trust is financed by the Government of the Netherlands, managed by The World Bank, and implemented by Sint Maarten’s National Recovery Program Bureau.
