In Guyana, there are numerous persons living with some form of physical disability. These disabilities can be a result of various reasons such as accidents, illness or disease, birth defects among others.
The Rotary Club of Georgetown in collaboration with the Mohan Thani Foundation donated a total of 30 wheelchairs to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation and the Infectious Disease Hospital.
The Club’s President Ramona Singh, in handing over the wheelchairs, stated that the Club recognises the need of persons living with disabilities to access appropriate mobility devices and rehabilitation services.
She further stated that the club will continue this initiative which seeks to improve the lives of persons with disabilities by enabling independent mobility and equal participation in community life.
Chief Executive Officer of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, Brigadier (ret’d) George A. Lewis expressed his sincere gratitude to the Club and the Mohan Thani Foundation for their usual support and generous contributions to the institution.
The President concluded by saying the club will continue to partner with the Mohan Thani Foundation and other like-minded organisations, as they execute life-changing projects. (Rotary/GPHC Press Release)
