[www.inewsguyana.com] – Following the establishment of a hotline number to receive complaints and concerns from persons affected by 2015 post-elections violence, the Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) on Wednesday handed over tangible contributions to two Sophia families that suffered tremendously.
At a simple handing over ceremony at the IAC Office on Quamina Street, Georgetown, representatives from the families, Mrs. Farida Prasad and Mrs. Pooladai Khublall, received financial contributions and expressed their thanks to the organisation.
According to a press release from the IAC, during the ceremony, they expressed the pains and suffering they endured during that period as well as significant losses which have severely affected their everyday lives.
“Both Mrs. Prasad and Mrs. Khublall have informed the IAC that they are unsure of living in their current homes in the future and are contemplating relocating for the sake of peace, security and avoidance of such incidents which now seems routine with elections. They pointed out that the relocation would be costly, hence making it even more challenging on them,” the IAC noted.
According to the organization, many incidents of intimidation and humiliation have been received since the hotline was established. The IAC is in the process of compiling a comprehensive report for submission to both local and international authorities.
