In the wake of the widespread flooding that devastated various parts north, central, east and southern Trinidad during the weekend of October 20, Petrotrin employees have initiated a Flood Relief Drive from October 22 to 26.
Thousands of dollars’ worth of items; including toiletries, cleaning supplies, ready-to-eat-nonperishable food items and ready-to-drink beverages including bottled water, juice and milk were donated.
Earlier today, Executive Director Reynold Ajodhasingh officially handed over the items on behalf of Petrotrin and its employees to the South Branch of the Trinidad and Tobago Red Cross Society.
Ajodhasingh noted that over the years Petrotrin’s employees have always been ready, willing and able to lend a helping hand to those affected by tragic and unforeseen circumstances.
He commended the employees for their generous response to Petrotrin’s Flood Relief Drive particularly at a time of organisational and personal changes and expressed his confidence that these employees will continue to lend support to those in need regardless of where their future paths take them.
The Trinidad and Tobago Red Cross Society, which has been coordinating relief efforts in conjunction with the respective Regional Corporations and the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force, will oversee the distribution of these items to those most in need.
