Government Extends Sympathies To The Family Of Amarah Lallitte

Government extends deepest sympathies to the family, neighbours, and all others who were impacted on learning of the tragic death of Amarah Lallitte.

It comes from Minister with the Responsibility for Gender and Child Affairs and the National AIDS Coordinating Committee, Ayanna Webster-Roy.

She believes in order to maintain peace and prosperity in our nation, all forms of abuse must be eradicated.

There is no excuse for mistreating anyone in an intimate relationship, whether they are a man or a woman.

As responsible adults, we can never justify the abuse of children, nor should they ever be used as pawns in family conflicts.

For the parents, guardians, caretakers, and families in distressing situations, she once again petition persons to seek help when faced with overwhelming challenges or emotions.

National social support system offers free counselling, mediation, food, shelter, and even medical care assistance.

Please seek professional help and prevent the family situation from escalating into unwanted and tragic circumstances by calling:

  • The National Family Services Division at 623-2608 (ext. 6701-6711)
  • Trinidad and Tobago Police Service at 999
  • The Children’s Authority Hotline at 996 or 800-2014
  • Childline at 131 or 800-4321
  • The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-SAVE (7283)

The Gender and Child Affairs Division will continue our efforts to ensure that families are aware of available services from the State.

It is looking forward to the continued cooperation of the public in reducing child endangerment and ensuring the welfare and protection of children.
