OPINION: Christmas cheer, banana republic, Payara and more – The GHK Lall Column

>>> Encouraging events, disturbing developments <<<

Kaieteur News –  Chickens are coming for Christmas. This announcement encourages celebrating Christmas starting now. The year has been such that chicken tidings bring joy. This means availability; a manageable price; and an overdue bite for Guyanese. We have had little to sing about this year, and if it takes Christmas chickens to encourage dancing a jig, let it be.

I am encouraged that Managing Director of Cardiology Services, Inc., Dr. Mahendra Carpen, returned prime lands in Ogle to NICIL. This land award does not pass smell test or eye test. Since no finances were committed, the land was, in essence, dumped in the lap of Cardiology Services Inc. Sure, the group wanted that land, just not in this questionable manner. It is good to see Guyanese doing the right thing, even when it costs.            Continue reading

FROM THE CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER, GUYANA MEDICAL RELIEF

September 21, 2013

Dear Fellow Guyanese and Friends:

This past year Guyana Medical Relief built a brand new VIA Clinic at the Charity Hospital, costing about US$25,000.00.   This is the third clinic we built in as many years. We continue to focus on Women’s and Children’s health.  The Charity Hospital is the gateway to the Pomeroon and as such, we are able to capture women from most of Region 2 and as far away as Region 1, in addition to those in Region 3.

Guyana has a 12 percent incidence of cervical cancer in our women, and GMR is aware of the lives we literally save by having these clinics built. We work in tandem with the Ministry of Health and with the Regional authorities to realize these projects.    [Read more: GMR Dinner Dance 2013 Solicitation Letter].

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

“These two dominant influences should not be allowed to overwhelm our identity
or diminish its complexity” (from editorial mentioned below)
A recent Sunday Stabroek News editorial posed the question, “Who are we?” and
directed attention to a contemporary ripple in the peopling of Guyana—the new
immigrants from Brazil and China. The editorial also insinuated some of the societal
anxieties associated with this contemporary development. For more than
5,000 years, the contemporary nation has had close and intimate relations with
the churn of the pushes and pulls of the human migration drama.    Continue reading

An Indian logger in Guyana – implications for REDD Norway MoU

An Indian logger in Guyana – implications for REDD Norway MoU – by Janette Bulkan

May 12 ,2012

I attach a 6-part series that ran in the Stabroek News newspaper of
Guyana from 16 April to 11 May, titled: ‘Through a glass, darkly – what’s wrong with an Indian coffee retailer exporting logs of prime furniture and flooring timber from Guyana instead of local processing for added value?’,  with a request that you re-post on your blog.

As I say in one of the pieces: ‘The lack of transparency of these two
deals is contrary to the call for transparency and improvement in
forest governance in the Norway-Guyana MoU signed in November 2009’.

Thank you.
Janette Bulkan

Here are the six articles –            Continue reading
