Help Relief Effort From Trinidad and Tobago

Local Red Cross appeals for money
Wednesday, December 29th 2004

The Trinidad and Tobago Red Cross Society is urgently appealing to the public for money to help the victims of countries affected by the recent earthquake and tsunamis.

All funds collected will be passed to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, to carry out relief and rehabilitation works in each territory.

The account is called the Trinidad and Tobago Red Cross Society Asian Appeal, and can be assessed through any branch of Republic Bank. The account number is 180463484801.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is hoping to raise 7.6 million swiss francs, but this figure is expected to increase dramatically as teams assess affected areas.

For more information, interested persons can contact the local Red Cross headquarters at 627-8128/ 8215; Judy Boopsingh, Public Relations and Information Director, at 640-6013; and Scott Muiznicks, Disaster Preparedness and Relief Director, at 632-1656; or Indra Girdharie, Administrative Secretary, Headquarters Office, at ttrcs@carib-link.net
