Mahdia tragedy: Cuba offers surgical help as more injured children brought to G/town


To ensure comprehensive care, the children who were injured in the recent Mahdia Secondary School Female Dormitory fire and were receiving treatment in Region Eight will be flown to Georgetown for further treatment and observation, President Irfaan Ali said on Tuesday.

Speaking the News Room, President Dr. Irfaan Ali emphasised that the children require the best possible care.

The President Ali said the Government of Cuba has offered to provide Guyana with any further surgical help needed for the survivors. That assistance includes flying any of them to Cuba, if needed.

The News Room understands efforts are being made to bring another two injured girls to Georgetown later Tuesday.

Aside from those two incoming patients, a total of nine girls, including one who needed a limb-saving operation because of the extent of her burns, were airlifted to the city on Monday for critical care at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
