DPI, Guyana, Tuesday, December 18, 2018

The compound of the Wales Primary School this afternoon was brightly lit with the smiling faces of scores of children who received early Christmas gifts.

This was compliments of the Ministry of Social Protection led by subject Minister Amna Ally as she continued her Christmas Toy Drive to the children of Wales and the surrounding communities.

The initiative is one geared towards ensuring that children in less-fortunate circumstances have an enjoyable Christmas.

“The Coalition government is here to bring cheer to the children of this community. We have hundreds of children here and we are happy to present them with toys and goodies for the Christmas holidays,” said Minister Ally.

The Christmas Toy Drive kicked off last Sunday in the communities of Buxton and Lusignan and continued in the community of Alberttown where hundreds of children and their parents also received early Christmas presents.
