The trinidad Guardian / Even while the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM), regional corporations and other state agencies are battling to bring normalcy back to the lives of thousands of citizens affected by the flooding, there are those up to no good.
In a release yesterday, the Ministry of Health advised that there were people who were pretending to be collecting flood relief aid on ministries’ behalf. The ministry said no entity has been authorised to embark on any donation drive on its behalf or that of the Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government.
It said although the individuals conducting the unscrupulous act appear to have an authentic document, which is laminated and bears the stamps of the Ministry of Health and a Regional Corporation, it is not legit.
The ministry asked anyone with information about the person(s) conducting this activity to contact the Arouca Police Station at 640-6138/7647 or your nearest police station.
