DPI, Guyana, Saturday, April 11, 2020
Members of the Plaisance Neighborhood Democratic Council and the Junior Chambers Guyana International on Saturday morning showed their appreciation to healthcare workers who are at the forefront of the COID-19 fight.
The group distributed over 100 of the packages containing water, juice, a vita malt beverage and masks at the Plaisance Bus Park on the East Coast of Demerara to the health sector workers as they made their way to work
Chairman of the Plaisance Neighborhood Democratic Council (NDC), Rodwell Lewi He noted the importance of society acknowledging the vital role these health workers play.
“It is a good thing when we can stop and reflect on those persons who are on the frontline, this is a serious issue which has spread to over one hundred countries, killing thousands. We as citizens must be thankful and help to fight this virus from spreading so that the fighters within the health sector can return to their families,” Lewis stated.
Member of Junior Chamber Guyana International, Orin Angoy, reminded that as the Government continues to fight the virus it is equally important that persons across the country be sensitised about the disease and the crucial role health workers have in caring for those affected by the virus.
“As we practise social distancing, we as a community also have to look out for those who are essential workers, many are tired after working long hours, just to return to their place of work after a few hours of rest. Today, we are letting our health workers know we care for them and we respect their passion to serve,” Angoy said.
Note: The Junior Chambers Guyana International was founded on April 1, 1967. Their mission is to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.
