first_imgDespite the abundant natural resources in Guyana and even with the expected production of oil, Guyana’s most important natural resource is its children.This is the view of former Attorney General Anil Nandlall as he distributed school bags and other essentials on behalf of East Berbice Sugar Workers Relief Committee as they prepare former sugar worker’s children for the new school year.“The responsibility of all of us is to ensure that the welfare of our children is always paramount and that whatever we do, we must ensure the advancement of our children’s welfare,” he said.Children of workers who were severed from the Skeldon estate when the factorySome of the children who received school bags and other essential school suppliesclosed its doors in December 2017 were given bags and other essential for the new school year complements of the East Berbice Sugar Workers Relief Committee (EBSWRC).The EBSWRC provided new school bags and other essentials for school to 150 students from the Corriverton, Skeldon and Messiah Primary Schools.Over 2000 workers at the Skeldon Estate were sent home when Government closed that estate.Speaking to the children and their parents at the Corriverton Primary School building, where the presentations were made last Saturday, Nandlall said we are living in a society where we are facing great challenges. Those challenges produce initiatives and organisations like the EBSEWRC.He noted that when the sugar estates were closed and thousands of workers lost their jobs and the future of their families became uncertain.“There children’s lives and future became dismal and out of that came this organisation and many of its kind right across the sugar belt. These organisations came up through the People’s Progressive Party working with other social partners to try to bring some relief to the sugar workers, their families and most importantly the children of the sugar workers,” Nandlall said.Member of Parliament Adrian Anamayah who is also a part of the organisation organised the presentation. He noted that most of the funding came from several Berbicians who nor reside overseas.Anamayah also related that the EBSEWRC has been providing hot meals to children of the severed workers since the start of the year.last_img read more
