Twelve charitable organizations across Guyana got a financial ‘boost’ when P&P Insurance Brokers on Friday donated $125,000 to each of them. The presentation took place at its office at 273 Lamaha Street, Georgetown.
P&P Insurance Brokers makes donation to 12 Charities
The organisations that benefited from the donations were Bless the Children Home; Caanan Children Home; Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre; Uncle Eddie’s Home; Friends of the Archers Home; the Dharm Shala; David Rose School for Handicapped Children; Cheshire Homes Guyana; Hauraruni Girls Home; Tina Insanally Foundation; Bal Nivas Shelter; and Joshua House Children Centre.
The donations are an annual contribution made to assist the organizations in the discharge their responsibilities and assist in furthering their charitable work.
According to the Executive Director, Vikash Panday, it is customary for the company to take time off and in the spirit of Christmas, make monetary donations to various organizations.
He said that the sum of $125,000 will be donated to each organization.
He added that one of the organizations that was a regular recipient is now defunct, but instead of reducing the contribution, the company replaced it with another organization; Joshua House Children Centre.
Additionally, Panday stated “We also wish to emphasize that this is only a small part of our community outreach. During the year, day in and day out, P&P assists in medical, education and sports amongst others.”
