Additional support is being given to the Rodriguez/Burke family who suffered a tragic loss in July when three of their children perished in a fire at their Rookery Nook, Maraval home.
The Minister of Social Development and the CEO of Angostura Limited Ian Forbes presented household items to the family at their new HDC home yesterday.
Among other things, household contributions included a washer/dryer combo, computer desk and a television.
Minister Donna Cox commended the children’s mother Jenille Rodriguez for being a good example of strength for her children and other families facing similar challenges.
Ms. Cox also reassured the family that her Ministry remains committed to providing support services and relief in whatever way possible.
In addition to a Rental Assistance grant for their HDC home, a Furniture Grant was also utilized to help furnish the home.
Mr. Forbes, meanwhile, says he is hopeful that by stepping in, Angostura is signaling the right message to Corporate T&T.
