The CEO applauded the selfless efforts of Mr. Persaud, stating that the donation is convenient and will help the hospital to ‘provide better care to the Guyanese populace, particularly at this time’.
“We know that Covid-19 is causing havoc around the world and we believe that one day, not too long from now, we can ease the spreading and subsequently stop it in good time”, Mr Inderjeet Persaud started. Mr Persaud believes that each person has his/her part to play when it comes to serving humanity.
