PPP again calls for more help to hur­ri­cane vic­tims

Weekend Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Once

again, in a mat­ter of mere weeks, we have the mis­for­tune of ex­tend­ing our sym­pa­thies and com­mis­er­a­tions to the Gov­ern­ment and peo­ples’ of the Caribbean na­tions which have been dev­as­tated by yet an­other Hur­ri­cane “Maria”, which has rav­aged the is­land of Do­minica and is en route to Puerto Rico, the Vir­gin Is­lands and Ba­hamas. From all in­dica- tions, the de­struc­tion and dis­lo­ca­tion have been mas­sive. We con­tinue to hope that our broth­ers and sis­ters in the af­fected ar­eas show the re­silience which we know they are ca­pa­ble of and have the strength to sur­vive this lat­est disas­ter.

As we did in re­la­tion to Hur­ri­cane “Irma”, we re­it­er­ate our call upon the Gov­ern­ment of Guyana to im­me­di­ate- ly ini­ti­ate steps to pro­vide as­sis­tance to our Caribbean broth­ers and sis­ters and to as­sist with the evac­u­a­tion of Guyanese liv­ing on the af­fected is­lands who are de­sirous of be­ing evac­u­ated.

Our Party wishes to as­sure our broth­ers and sis­ters af­fected by this mon­ster hur­ri­cane that we stand with them in this time of their tragedy.
