Dr. Sam returns home

Dr. Christian raises his arms in thanksgiving

Medical doctor, Dr. Sam Christian has returned to Dominica from Martinique where , over the past four months, he has been receiving medical treatment for an injury to his pelvis sustained during an accident in which he got pinned by his own vehicle.

Dr. Christian, who is the declared UWP candidate for the Soufriere constituency, returned to the island via ferry this morning to a warm welcome from United Workers Party supporters including some of his supporters from the Soufriere constituency, family and friends.

In delivering some remarks at a welcome ceremony on the Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard, he stressed that the occasion was not a “Workers’ event but a Dominica event’ and thanked the Minister for Health who had been invited but was unable to attend, the manger of DBS Cecil Joseph who was instrumental in securing the helicopter, the cabinet of Dominica and prime minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is a very critical time for Dominica.  If I was a French citizen, I would be there for another six more months. My physiotherapist told me make sure I continue to do my therapy because it’s going to take six months for me to reach maximum improvement.” Dr. Christian told those gathered. “I may go overseas in the next few weeks or few months but the physical therapist, Dr. Dada has agreed to come to my home at five o’clock this afternoon to see me because he’s going to be leaving the country. So I’m very thankful to him..”

Dr. Christian also thanked all the “hard-working” nurses and health care professionals at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

“We are going to do the very best we can to make sure that we have the proper conditions and housing for health care professionals, for our nurses and for our doctors in the clinics and in the hospitals of Dominica. This is my commitment,” he declared.

    Glad that Mr. Christian returned home in much better health than he left. I wish him continued success as he continues to rehab from this accident.

    Welcome home Dr. Sam, great to see you and also on DNO, with your well wishers and supporters. We await your contiued campaign for the upcoming general elections to kick out failed, inept immature Skerrit and his19 years corrupt Labour government. This failed leader/DLP has fooled us, abused us, dumped us, reduced us to beggars & poverty while those have enriched themselves, fly NY often, family moved to New York, with dad to follow becasue he will lose the elcetions and will be kickd out. We hope that wifey will not be a candidate to run anywhere in Dominnica for elections. Go back to New York Melissa, stay there and don`t come here to waste our time with your nonesense immature highty, tighty loose illiterate comical nonsense talk. People of your circle have robbed Domininca, meaning ignored, abandoned Dominica as our peoiple go deeper into poverty and unemployment. Skerrit Must Go, Melissa must NOT come, just stay away, you are not welcome madam, you have nothing to offer us. Go.

    It’s such a shame the country is without a proper hospital, we have become a nation of beggers for our survival.the leader begs for everything and he has the citizens beg him for what little he want them to have,we produce nothing and no institutions.

    Those Sukuya of Ahab and jezebel tried to take him out but they did not succeed. Welcome back home Dr. Sam. Take it easy and do what you have to do to get back to maximum health. May God bless you and continue to watch over you and all the rest of prophets that have not and will not bow their knees to Baal and Jezebel
