Safe shelter in Moriah

Commanding officer of the Regiment's First Engineering Battalion, Major Jerome Affonso, receives an appreciation award on behalf of soldiers who worked alongside volunteers on the ‘Safe Shelter Through Landslide Mitigation’ project in Moriah from Derwin Howell,chairman of Habitat for Humanity Trinidad and Tobago.

The Government of Canada, in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity, the Moriah Village Council, the Tobago Emergency Management Authority (TEMA), the NIHERST/Global Water Partnership-Caribbean, and the Tobago House of Assembly, on October 5, celebrated the successful completion of a major environmental project in the village.

The project, ‘Safe Shelter Through Landslide Mitigation’, funded by Canadian Government, saw the building of ten retaining walls, five rainwater harvesting systems, planting of 100 tree and ground-cover plants, as well as community training in retaining wall and rainwater harvesting system installation.

And to top it all off, a mural by artist Di-Shon Abel, graced a wall at Fairhill Trace, Moriah, to mark the completion of the project.

Habitat for Humanity Trinidad and Tobago hosted a function at the Moriah Community Centre to commemorate the completion of the project.
