First Lady treats Hope Children’s Home to World T20 trophy interaction


First Lady Arya Ali brought beaming smiles to children from the Hope Children’s Home when she treated them to an interactive opportunity with the iconic ICC Men’s T20 World Cup trophy.

Local tournament ambassadors were also at State House in Georgetown on Wednesday morning.

Mrs. Ali expressed her delight in bringing joy to the children from one of their adopted orphanages.

The First Lady indicated these children probably would not have gotten a chance to be up close to the silverware and interact with local cricket stars.

She urged Guyanese to support the trophy tour, which continues Thursday with two public engagements—at St. George’s Cathedral from 13:00h and the Kingston Seawall Esplanade from 17:00h—and, most importantly, turn out in numbers for the matches at the National Stadium, Providence.

Guyana will host five group matches from June 2-8, followed by the second semi-final on June 27.

Physical ticket sales are ongoing at the Guyana Cricket Board office on Regent Street.
