CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE ALBERT BALDEO CALLS FOR SPECIAL FUND TO BE SET UP FOR FUTURE DISASTERS & ASKS FOR HELP FOR GUYANA'S FLOOD DISASTER

Attorney at Law Albert Baldeo, one of the largest donors, and who represented District 28 comprising of Rochdale Village, Ozone Park, Jamaica and Richmond Hill at the New York Tsunami Flood Relief held at the World Fair Marina last Tuesday, made an urgent call to the many elected officials, business and community leaders present to set up a permanent relief fund to "alleviate the damage and suffering caused by natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and tsunamis, both locally and around the world, so that human suffering can be minimized. We must stand ready, willing and able to assist humanity, because every second lost can mean lives lost, as happened in the last tsunami tragedy." The event coordinated the largest assembly of elected officials, community leaders, businessmen and professionals and was chaired by Council member Hiram Monserrate and Assemblyman Jimmy Meng. Baldeo also told the gathering about the Flood disaster in Guyana, and asked for assistance to be sent there. "500,000 of our Guyanese brothers, sisters and babies need medical supplies, food, boats, generators, clothing and other supplies, and continuous infrastructure work, and we ask for help from everyone. Any supplies can be sent directly to Guyana, or brought to THE BALDEO COMMUNITY CENTER, where we will transport same to Guyana," he implored of all present.
