Three Dominicans displaced by Hurricane Maria have expressed gratitude to the government and citizens of Trinidad and Tobago for opening their homes and hearts with “pure, natural love”.
For this, Myrle Shillingford, cousin Reginald and his wife Rosemerlyn Shillingford said they will forever have Trinidad in their hearts. “I’ll tell you something about Trinidad, we’ve been treated like we’re in a five-star hotel. I love Trinidad and will never forget Trinidad. Having never experienced trauma like that in my life, Trinidad is the one that came out first. We’re here two weeks now and all that we have were given to us,” Myrle said in an interview with Catholic News, October 21.
