MMG makes Donations to Support Ministry of Public Health Volunteers During the COVID-19 Pandemic

– HEOC Volunteers to benefit from free GTT mobile service..

Georgetown, GUYANA, May 11, 2020: Mobile Money Guyana (‘MMG’) is to make donations over a period of three months to support the Health Emergency Operating Centre. Since the confirmation of the first case of COVID-19 in Guyana, the Ministry of Public Health, through the Health Emergency Operating Center (‘HEOC’), activated a 24-hour hotline to serve as one of its first line of defence in Guyana’s fight against the virus.

Additionally, The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GTT) has also indicated that it will extend its complementary mobile offer to the HEOC volunteers as it has to nurses and doctors for the same period.

“This is one of the many ways we at GTT and MMG choose to express our gratitude to those who have selflessly volunteered their services during this pandemic. Their contributions are noted and we want to say thank you to those volunteers for doing their part in helping to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in Guyana,” Justin Nedd, CEO of GTT has said.

In March 2020, the COVID-19 hotline numbers were made toll free – compliments of GTT.

Members of the public are encouraged to call the hotline on 0180 and 0181 for information regarding COVID-19. The hotline serves as one of the main source of information to facilitate Contact Tracing – a vital component in identifying those who need further medical advice and care.
