Haiti Relief Effort in Grenada – Information

Haiti Relief
Prepared by Ms. Roberté Laurent

The situation is very desperate, as you have been seeing on the television. I am very touched by the out-pouring of support from Grenadians. On behalf of the Haitian people, I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone.

Most people are asking what assistance they can give? Because of the generosity of the Grenadian people, an hoc committee has been formed comprised of the following persons

  • Roberte Laurent
  • Beverly Renwick
  • Chenny Joseph
  • Cecile La Grenade
  • Leslie Ann Seon
  • Mithsouka Ramdhanny

We plan to obtain a 20 foot container which we hope will be donated. We will fill the container with donated supplies which will be sent to Haiti as soon as possible due to the extreme urgency of the situation.

We are asking for donations of the following items:-

  • Tents, blankets, tarpaulins, sleeping bags, sheets clothes and shoes for men, women and children, cooking utensils, cups, plates, spoons and medical supplies.
  • We will also need non-perishable food items, rice, flour, sugar, milk, cereals, canned goods, can openers etc.We are requesting that the items be packed in cardboard boxes, crates or barrels.

We are currently organizing a central receiving area where the goods will be packed. You can call De La Grenade Industries at 435 4819, 449 0848, or Seon and Associates at 435 1770 or 407 2040 to find out the location of the receiving area.

So far we have received donations of:-
50 cases of 5 litre bottles of water, ( 1000 liters?) from Glenelg Spring Water
5 bags of dried milk, 5 bags rice and 5 bags of brown sugar from De La Grenade Industries
5 bags of dried milk, 5 bags rice and 5 bags of brown sugar from Seon and Associates

We will also need volunteers to help pack the container. Once again we wish to thank everyone.
