T&T Defence Force (TTDF) personnel have begun their relief operations in the Bahamas.
In a press release issued, this morning, TTDF public affairs officer Lieutenant Sherron Manswell said that the organisation's 100 member team started operations on Monday by meeting with Director of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Stephen Russell, who is coordinating relief efforts in the islands of the archipelago ravaged by Hurricane Dorian.
Children in schools across T&T have been asked to donate non-perishable food items to assist persons from The Bahamas who have been displaced by Hurricane Dorian.
The relief effort which is being coordinated by the Ministry of Education will span a period of two weeks from September 16 to 27.
Soca artistes Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin are advising young people to never be afraid to step out and live their dreams in the entertainment industry.
And if there were any questions about whether or not the unity the two artistes displayed during Trinidad and Tobago's 2017 Carnival, they continue to show their comradery as they prepare to perform together in The Bahamas on the weekend.
Machel and Bunji are listed to perform at the Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival fete on Friday night, which is a precursor to the street parade.
