For the first time in years, Salmattie Garibsingh is looking forward to her birthday on November 4.
Garibsingh, who is blind and bedridden, was visited by officials from the Ministry of Social Development on Wednesday at her Arena Road, Freeport home.
Help came after Guardian Media highlighted her living conditions on Tuesday. She was promised three grants, one to complete her home, another to install electrical wiring and the third to furnish the house. She was also promised a food card and a new wheelchair.
Laventille East/Morvant MP Adrian Leonce is asking for prayers for his wife after she was involved in an accident.
The MP took to social media to say his wife was injured last Thursday in an accident and now requires several surgeries to return to good health.
MP Leonce says his focus will be on his wife and children over the next couple weeks.
