HERE IS AN AMAZING NOTE WE RECEIVED FROM KIRTIA ARTHUR:

 "We are grateful that our twin Island Trinidad and Tobago has been spared this season and that we are in a position to help our brothers and sisters throughout the Caribbean.  We have joined forces with a local NGO called ITNAC an acronym for "is there not a cause' They are known here as first responders for providing assistance in disaster stricken Caribbean areas. We collect relief items and food and have had our volunteers there daily . Last night we got the assistance of the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment who sent their large trucks and military staff to transportation water and clothing to the port to be taken to Dominica.

One of our sisters Kendra Blanchard, who lives on the Island of Grenada  (35 minutes flight from Trinidad) parents live in Dominica, which was badly destroyed by Hurricane Maria. They are alive but their home was damaged and they are staying with neighbours.  [Kendra] is attempting to go.  Together with ITNAC we plan to charter a boat from Trinidad which can carry supplies and relief workers to Dominica.

We are engaging local donors for housing and medical supplies as well as food and water to be taken on the chartered vessel.
I have been sending regular updates on t e HOPE w orldwide Trinidad and Tobago Facebook page. You can add me on both to keep abreast if you would like.

I am very grateful that you have made contact with us and for the support offered. I am attaching a few pics of the work and our progress."

PLEASE SUPPORT THE GLOBAL DISASTER FUND TODAY!


By Shane Engel 19 Sep, 2017

A powerful earthquake jolted central Mexico today (Tuesday, September 19, 2017). The earthquake buckled buildings, cracked foundations and brought rubble down on all sides of Mexico City. The U.S. Geological Survey has said the quake had magnitude 7.1 and was centered near Puebla.  At this time dozens of people are reported dead and many are hurt and missing.  We have local chapter partners and church leaders that we have been able to make contact with, but your prayers are needed more than ever.  

Please check back for updates.

Be well!
