[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry (GBTI) as part of its annual activities donated $750,000 to eight local charitable organizations on Wednesday (December 4) at the Bank’s main office in Kingston, Georgetown.
The eight fortunate organizations are the David Rose School for the Handicap, the Dharam Shala Home for the Benevolent, the Guyana Society for the Blind, the Guyana Relief Counsel, The Salvation Army and Uncle Eddy’s Home.
According to Administrative Manager Sean Noel, it is the Bank’s belief that the donation can assist, in a meaningful way, to address areas of challenge. He said while the bank has selected just eight organizations it remains conscious that there are other organizations that address various needs and challenges.
Noel noted that apart from these contributions, GBTI is also involved in several other ways, assisting with the development of society from a social, infrastructural and economic standpoint.
He added that with the recent establishment of the Port Kaituma branch, the bank has recommitted to the rehabilitation of the nurses hostel which provides suitable living accommodation for the nurses in that area.
“These organizations we have partnered with for a number of years because we know their work, we have followed their work and we believe what they are doing really make an impact on those that they serve.”
The Administrative Manager pledged the bank’s continued support. In turn, the organizations expressed profound gratitude to the institution for its assistance.
