TO THE BAHAMAS RELIEF EFFORT

The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) continues to convey our thanks and appreciation to the citizenry of Trinidad and Tobago for your continued prayers and outpouring of support, shown for the welfare of the People of  the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, following Hurricane Dorian’s devastating impact.

The ODPM once again wishes to thank the many individuals and corporate entities who continue to make monetary contributions and donate items toward the relief effort. In this regard, the ODPM would like to make a final appeal to members of the national community who still wish to assist the many families affected by Hurricane Dorian, to please take note of the  changes regarding the information on the  fifteen (15) relief centres that were established.
