March against domestic violence Saturday


THE United Bridge Builders Mission Inc (UBBM) is inviting the public to a Mass March and Rally against Domestic Violence and Suicide at Vreed-en-Hoop on Saturday.
To be held under the theme, “United Against Violence and Suicide”, the event begins at 12:00 hrs with a march moving off from outside J.C’s Super Market within the precincts of the Demerara Harbour Bridge and will end at the Vreed-en-Hoop Stelling, where the rally will take place.

Speakers include Bonita Montaque, of Guyana and the United States of America, Founder of the United Bridge Builders Mission; Regional Executive Officer Denis Jaikaran and other senior health and regional officials.

Concerned about both the magnitude and impact of domestic violence and suicide – not only on the immediate relatives of the victims, but the Guyanese society as a whole — the stakeholders are working feverishly to address such issues, with a view to stamping them out.

The event is being held in collaboration with the Region Three Regional Democratic Council, the Ministries of Public Health, Education and Social Protection as well as the Guyana Action Committee and Linden Youth Corps.
