Penal/Debe Corp Chair: Households impacted by Bret still waiting for grants


    Some households in South that were severely impacted by the passage of Tropical Storm Bret in 2017 are still waiting for relief grants.

    This claim was made today by Chairman of the Penal/Debe Regional Corporation, Dr Allan Sammy, as he gave an update on the homes affected by a ‘freak storm’ yesterday.

    Dr Sammy says the Disaster Management Unit will be out again today doing profiles for each family, including the nature of their losses, which will then be submitted to the Social Welfare Division.

    However, he is not optimistic about the response.
