On Sunday December 16th, a group of Rotarians from the twenty-five year old Rotary Club of Demerara journeyed from Georgetown to St. Cuthbert’s Mission to deliver drinking water containers.
A previous visit to the village had revealed that there were several families who did not have receptacles to store drinking water. The Rotary Club reached out to our partners and the Demerara Distillers Limited immediately responded with a donation of some food safe drums. The drums were prepared and branded compliments of Jai Signs. They were transported to the village by Rotarians.
In a simple ceremony witnessed by the villagers and Toshao Beverley Clenkian, fourteen deserving families received water barrels. The Club will endeavour to do same for other residents who are in similar need, a release from the Roatary Club said.
Also on Saturday last, the Club gathered at the Archer’s and later the Bryer’s Homes to spread holiday cheer. This annual tradition saw Rotarians practicing their creativity to decorate the Homes. They shared a meal with the residents and care packages were presented to each resident.
