Local NGO calls for aid for Bret victims

Local non-governmental organisation ITNAC (Is There Not a Cause?) has been hard at work helping to give supplies and other aid to citizens whose homes and property have been destroyed as a result of flooding from tropical storm Bret. 

The group thanked citizens who sent contributions such as mattresses, drinking water, clothes and other much-needed items to communities in Oropouche, Williamsville, and Woodlands after many homes were destroyed by flood waters.

"The people of south Trinidad have gotten hit the most but your kind contributions give us the ability to lend a hand. Thank you so much and continue to send in your support!" The group said in a social media post. 

The group has also been assisting families in the Woodlands community in South Trinidad.

"When a pastor calls and ask for help for his community I can't tell you the joy I feel. So we were asked to visit and assist in Woodlands. 
Big thanks to Deborah Dowlath, Kelsey
Eve , Betty Ann Hurdle & Hadassah Hector. We are also going to be working with a pundit from one of the areas to bring relief to some victims. We are about showing the heart of Yahweh! Some pics from today," head of the group, Avonelle Hector said in a social media post on June 23. 

The group is calling for others to keep sending supplies to help these families get back on their feet. 

Volunteers are needed to help transport items to Woodlands and Williamsville and can call 485-0377 or 796-2019 for more information.
