    We must support this team for their vision, dedication and Care for those in need. Linden is fortunate that a son of its soil can organise and put together such a complex team to deal with the medical and surgical issues affecting our citizens of Linden. It would be nicer for others with similar skills to come to Essequibo, Demerara and Berbice and bring relief to our suffering thousands.
    May God bless this mission and all who contribute to its success.

    This is a truly notable Guyanese effort to give back to the country that played a significant role in the early development of the contributing medical practitioners. It would be so good to see others who originated from other regions in Guyana make similar efforts. Guyana has a rich history of people of diverse origins who have done well abroad in many disciplines, and are truly willing to do more for their country,
    if only the political environment was more inviting.
