Over the past few weeks, the Guyana Foundation has continued its work on various fronts to bring tangible relief to communities in need. Urgently-needed items were recently distributed to residents of Phillipai, Region 7, and Soesdyke, East Bank Demerara, while the Foundation has also announced plans to launch its first Sunrise Center on the Essequibo Coast to improve the mental well-being of vulnerable residents.

On April 26, 2016, several hundred pieces of new clothing were handed-over to the remote community of Phillipai, Region 7, by one of the Foundation’s volunteers, Mr. Neil Bacchus. This donation was accepted by Village Councilor, Mr. Jack Edwin, on behalf of residents who turned up in their numbers at the Phillipai airstrip to witness the handing-over.  
Also present were representatives of the Ministry of Indigenous People’s Affairs who facilitated this activity, and who the Foundation will be collaborating with to conduct thirty-six similar distributions in communities across Regions 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9.  [Read more]
