Justice and Public Safety Minister, Doug Currie accepted a thank-you plaque on behalf of all Islanders for their generous support this year for the devastating earthquake in Haiti and disastrous flooding in Pakistan. “We’re a little province with a very big heart,” said Laura Johnson-Montigny, operations manager for PEI Red Cross. “We welcome every opportunity to let Islanders know how Red Cross is using their donations directly to assist those devastated by the horrific disasters but also felt we should provide a small but tangible record of our appreciation for their support.”
Financial donations to both relief operations are ongoing. Updates on Red Cross relief work, as well as options for additional donations, are available online at www.redcross.ca.
