The death toll is now in the 80s following upon Hurricanes Manuel and Ingrid. The administration office inside Paradise Village Shopping Centre is collecting supplies – today (Friday 20 September) is the last day. They are requesting easy open canned foods plus packaged foods – beans, rice etc; personal hygiene items, and house cleaning products. The office is open from 08.00 to 10 pm.
The office at Marina La Cruz is collecting canned food now until the morning of Wednesday 25 September, when the harbor master will then deliver it to the local Red Cross for onward shipment. Please note they only want canned food, and it would be preferable if those cans were the easy open type.
Please spare a thought and a few cans for those in need.
