[www.inewsguyana.com] – Minister of Social Protection, Volda Lawrence made an impromptu visit to the Palms, Brickdam, Georgetown on Monday, 23 November 2015 following complaints by the inmates there.
According to a release from the Ministry, Lawrence said residents of the State-run institution are complaining about conditions of the Wards, especially on Monday mornings.
The Minister said residents of the Palms are unhappy with the performance of staff working the night shift “who do not complete their responsibilities”.
“Having visited the Palms I have to have follow up meeting(s) with the Administrator,” of the institution, Lawrence said.
“This is priority. What has to be done is not huge but technical. If there is no funding remaining in the 2015 budgetary estimates I will be seeking emergency funding,” to get this done before the end of this year, Lawrence promised.
