Fallen Heroes Foundation officially launched; over $3M donated


IMG_1531[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Police Force in collaboration with the Cops and Faith Community Network on November 05, 2015 established a foundation that will forever benefit the families of ranks who would have died in the line of duty.

A police release noted that at a simple ceremony, Commissioner of Police Seelall Persaud, stood in front of a packed auditorium at the Police Officers Training Center and launched the Guyana Police Force Fallen Heroes Foundation Inc.

“The Foundation, a brain child of the Commissioner and the first of its kind in the Caribbean has received overwhelming support from a wide cross section of society and the government of Guyana,” the release noted.

Speaking on the ideas behind the initiative, Commissioner Persaud reflected on the last four passing of ranks in the line of duty – Ellias, Cleto, Pantlitz and Dawson – and their families who are left without any hope of financial support to continue their lives.

“President of the Foundation, Reverend Raphael Massiah said that he and all the other members of the Foundation, who were drawn from the Force’s Cops and Faith Network together with a Business Executive, are all proud to be a part of the body that will be responsible for bringing about positive changes in the lives of the families of slain police ranks,” the police release stated.

It was noted that Minister of Social Protection, Volda Lawrence pledged her Ministry’s support, pointing out that she understands the pain persons go through when they lose a loved one. She also made a donation to the foundation personally and another on behalf of the Ministry.

At the conclusion of the launch, donations were made by representatives of several private companies and businesses inclusive of Roraima Group of Companies and Industrial Safety Supplies, totaling in excess of three million seven hundred thousand dollars (3,700,000).
