News day / Shaquilla Gay, of Beggs Trace, Toco, lost her home and all her possessions, including her childrens school books and uniforms in the fire.
The family is, at present, staying at the Keshorn Walcott High School but Gay fears for their future when school reopens in September.
We will have to leave here, but I dont know where we will go, she said.
The family is being provided food and linen by the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation and the ODPM. My children needs books, stationery and uniforms for the reopening of the new school term and a place to call home once more, she said, as she appealed to the authorities to assist her, particularly with housing. Chairman of the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation Terry Rondon, said he was making every effort to bring some added relief to the distraught mother and her children.
He said NGOs have been responding to their needs by supplying food and clothing but a house is yet to come.
Rondon, however, said the SGRC was making efforts to have a temporary structure built on the land where Gays house once stood.
