[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Liliendaal Community Development Group was presented with a $1million cheque by Prime Minister and First Vice President Moses Nagamootoo, to enhance the community’s development initiatives.
The handing over took place at the community’s playground, Liliendaal Greater Georgetown on December 18 where the group members organised an afternoon of fun and games for the children of the area. The activity also saw the children receiving gifts, enjoying pony rides, jumping on the trampoline and having their faces painted.
In his remarks during the presentation of the cheque to founder of the group Beryl Haynes, the Prime Minister explained that this is the first time that an activity was held on the playground and, “in a sense we can say that some monies have been given to fence and secure the ground.”
The Prime Minister committed to working with the community group to further develop the ground into a community meeting place, one where the youths can undertake meaningful recreational activities.
“We want to ensure that the young people are not involved in drugs, crime and all other non-productive activities and for them to move away from all the bad things that are happening,” he told the gathering. The community has an active football group.
He urged the group members to continue to pursue developmental initiatives for Liliendaal’s further advancement. [Extracted and modified from GINA]
I don’t know what is wrong with these racist jokers i’m of the belief that this is a mix community …also the picture seem like it has more than one race of people in it..but as always haters will hate.
$1M for Liliendaal Community Development Group from Prime Minister
Ask Nagapakkoo how much is one mil to the handful that posing with him compare to the billions Linden gets..
It seems to me that only one group of people get handouts– this the norm –will this make their lives better — it never has –do not expect any other group to ask for same they can provide for themselves..
Only one set of people are benefiting from govt largesse.
That’s great news and I am sure that the money will be spent wisely as Mrs Haynes is a very honest and caring individual. I hope that she will be supported by members of the community and that the villagers would appreciate and value what is done in their interest. Good luck.
