2020/05/13

On May 12, 2020, the Embassy of the People's Republic of China through Mr. CHEN Xilai, Deputy Chief of the Mission, made a donation of food and sanitation hampers worth nearly 1.1 million GYD to the Guyana Council of Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (GCOPD) to help families with disabled members combat COVID-19.

Mr. CHEN in handing over the hampers to the recipients remarked that COVID-19 brought unprecedented challenges to the whole world. "Our disabled Guyanese friends are the most vulnerable and are affected badly. We share common destiny. So I can feel your pain," he said, "The Embassy has long been pursuing providing assistances to the Guyanese people within its capacity. It is ready to work with Guyana and overcome the current difficulties together."

Mr. Cecil Morris, Chairman of GCOPD, expressed his sincere gratitude to the Embassy on behalf of the persons with disabilities and their families. "The vulnerable group of people lost their daily incomes and are encountering great difficulty in their survival as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the hampers containing rice, flour, sanitiser and many other items meet their urgent needs," said Mr. Morris.
