The ATM of the Caribbean

I didn't see the interview with Mr Cadiz, so perhaps I am speaking out of turn. On a TV interview this morning I was told that he spoke about giving money to Haiti. Basically he echoed the "Trinidad is not the ATM of the Caribbean" sentiment from the Prime Minister.

He spoke about giving to Haiti so as to benefit Trinidad. In other words, give with the intention to have a financial return. WHAT???

The Caribbean is made up of Volcanic islands that sit in the Hurricane belt. There will be natural disasters. Trinidad is the oil rich nation among the group. We are obligated as a nation to help any nation that we can.

As Catholics, we should make it known that we support our country giving monies to other Caribbean nations in crisis.
