In keeping with the Government of Guyana’s commitment to taking swift and robust action in response to the recent devastating earthquake in Haiti, the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) has established a humanitarian account to aid in relief efforts.
The account was established on the heels of a direct telephone conversation last Saturday between Guyana’s President, Dr. Irfaan Ali and the newly appointed Haitian Prime Minister, Dr. Ariel Henry.
The OPM will be working closely with civil society, the private sector, and other partners to quickly raise funds for a coordinated, substantial relief response for the affected people of Haiti, a statement from the office said last evening.
“Guyana’s resolve to stand in solidarity in good and bad times with our CARICOM brothers and sisters across the region remains steadfast. As we have done in the past, we will combine energies and resources to meet this latest humanitarian challenge to bring comfort and relief to our Haitian brothers and sisters as quickly as possible. We ask that Guyanese in the diaspora join our efforts to provide substantial relief through our collective response.”
