Some 520 hampers and over 2000 face masks were handed over to Toshaos and Community Leaders in Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo (Region Nine) to aid households that are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Making the presentations were Minister of Amerindian Affairs, Pauline Campbell-Sukhai; Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Nigel Dharamlall; and the Civil Defence Commission’s (CDC) Director-General Lieutenant-Colonel Kester Craig and Deputy Director Major Loring Benons.

The communities of Potarinau, Katuur, Baitoon, Quiko, Sand Creek, Wowetta, Rupertee, Annai and Aranaputa are all expected to benefit from this initiative.

The team received a warm welcome and appreciative words by residents of the various communities for the much needed support they will benefit from.
