Scores of victims of domestic violence and other forms of abuse have visited the Chaguanas Borough Corporation seeking assistance.
This was revealed by mayor Vandana Mohit yesterday as she toured the borough.
She gave roses and carnations to women working with the borough’s road gangs.
Mohit said the victims were refered to the relevant authorities. She also gave the assurance that the borough’s outreach centre for victims of abuse would be opened in the near future.
The workers who receibed the flowers lauded the gesture noting that it was never done in the past.
Mohit said it was her way of saying thanks to the many women who work on the gangs daily cleaning the streets in the various communities.
