What a shocking and sad turn of events for our Caribbean neighbors in Haiti this week. I am certain that I speak for all the people of Trinidad and Tobago when I say that we are deeply saddened by the loss of life, the injuries and the devastation. The people of Haiti and the brave rescue workers are in our prayers as we mourn this tragedy.

In however small or large a way, we must do what we can to support the rescue and recovery efforts of our Caribbean brothers and sisters. The swift efforts and noble commitments of aid from the world and from Trinidad and Tobago this week are commendable. It is our responsibility to monitor the progress of relief in Haiti and provide as much assistance as possible as their needs become more apparent.

Now, the long-suffering people of Haiti are in the midst of the crisis – in the midst of the darkest chaos of destruction. With the world community and the Caribbean family in particular, we extend our hand to the Haitian people. We must help them climb out of the depths and into a brighter day.

For now, do what you can to support the Caribbean Red Cross and ask your friends and family to do the same:
