I write to applaud the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) International for its kindness in donating two 40-foot containers of anti-COVID supplies to the Ministry of Health, to share with the public.
The organisation’s work, along with that of its local partner, Sew Guyana, is inspiring, and is a model to emulate in helping the poor of all faiths and backgrounds globally.
Both have responded generously with a huge quantity of materials to help Guyana during this ongoing COVID crisis, which began in March 2020 and has claimed some 700 lives in Guyana and several millions globally.
An oxygen-generating plant is expected to arrive soon; it will be outfitted to produce medical oxygen – an act of generosity from Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh.
The HSS has been in the forefront of helping people in several countries during these difficult times. This charitable, non-profit organisation provides medical materials to help affected people and struggling countries navigate the virus to reduce victims.
Sewa (Hindu term that means ‘to serve’) Guyana, the local body that works closely with HSS International, would help the Ministry of Health in the distribution process of the PPE and other hygiene items.
Guyanese need these materials, as demand has risen, especially during this dangerous period, when the Delta variant is wreaking havoc on the population. This generosity of HSS and volunteerism of Sewa Guyana would provide much-needed relief to Guyanese on the frontlines of combating COVID-19 and helping people in communities across this country as they confront the pandemic.
Many people have lost their jobs over the last 18 months, and they are unable to purchase basic materials for protection against the pandemic.
I would like to thank HSS and Sewa Guyana for the outstanding work they have been doing to help communities to battle COVID.
