Fifteen families who were victims of the natural disaster which occurred on the 28th of November, 2016 received compensation in the form of furniture, appliances and mattresses from the Ministry of the People and Social Development today.

The families are from Grande Riviere and Matelot.

This represents the 2nd tranche of assistance, the first set of families being compensated in December 2016.

A third tranche of compensation will take place next week.

This was as a result of a collaborated effort by Councillor Martin Terry Rondon, chairman of the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation, the Disaster Management Unit and Ministry of the People & Social Development.
