Moriah Landslide Mitigation Project

Habitat for Humanity Trinidad and Tobago hosted a function at the Moriah Community Centre to commemorate the completion of a project to build retaining walls in the hillside community on October 5, 2017. The project, ‘Safe Shelter Through Landslide Mitigation’, was funded by the Government of Canada in collaboration between Habitat for Humanity, the Moriah Village Council, the Tobago Emergency Management Authority (TEMA), the NIHERST/Global Water Partnership-Caribbean, and the Tobago House of Assembly, provided ten retaining walls, five rainwater harvesting systems, one hundred (100) tree and ground-cover plants, and community training in retaining wall and rainwater harvesting system installation. Following the ceremony, guests visited Fairhill Trace, Moriah, to observe the new mural painted to mark the completion of the project.
