Montrealers helping T&T
These two events are part of efforts by Trinidadians in Montreal who are rallying to help their home country following the widespread flooding that have inundated much of the island and left ten of thousands stranded and homeless.
The relief effort is being headed by several in the entertainment industry including DJs Production Sounds, Biggz as well as members of Central Boys and Chaguanas Senior Comprehensive, Challengers Soccer Team and Soca Survivors.
They have placed barrels in strategic locations across Montreal, to collect supplies to send to assist flood victims at home.
And they are asking Montrealers to drop off supplies such as bedding items, towels, baby supplies, cleaning products, hygiene products, non perishable/canned foods, first Aid supplies clothing for men, women and children V lounge

After three days of non-stop rain that started on October 17, a significant chunk of Trinidad was inundated with water, particularly the central region and in areas of the eastern parts of the country.
At the height of the flood, the southeastern village of Mayaro and others parts of south T&T were cut off from the rest of the island. Food, water and other basic supplies are in demand.
The government has since declared much of the island a disaster area.
