[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph GT&T Company presented a cheque worth $1M to assist the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation with its enhancement initiative on Friday, November 8.
According to GT&T this marks the beginning of what both parties hope will be a meaningful and long-lasting relationship.
GT&T’s Marketing, Sales and Public Relations Director, Roma Narayan-Singh said GT&T was pleased to make the contribution to enhance the ambiance of the hospital as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility.
Meanwhile, GPHC’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Michael Khan lauded GT&T’s support stating that the contribution will be significant in assisting the Corporation with this initiative.
The donation is expected to kick-start the hospital’s drive to enhance its immediate surroundings particularly the New Market entrances. It will cover the cost of landscaping the area on either side of the street, painting and putting up signage to indicate no parking, no stopping, drop-off, and keep clear zones.
It has also enabled the hospital to deal with the problem of private cars that blocked the entrances and whose drivers molest persons, and to recognise as authorised by the hospital, drivers of 11 taxis who have a long standing relationship in providing transport from the hospital.
New Market Street from Thomas to East Streets is now closed to minibuses and is a total no-parking street. The public will be advised and educated to use the Hospital’s East Street Car Park area (between New Market and Middle Street). The Hospital will be seeking the assistance of the Police Traffic Department and the Georgetown City Council to enforce these decisions.
