Home Letters Good Samaritan urgently needed in Region One
I read a letter in the Guyana Times (Mon, July 18, 2016) titled “Good Samaritan leads the way in Region 5” by Harry Gill, Member of Parliament (PPP/C).
Gill wrote that Nowrang Persaud with the blessings of the Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC) built a permanent shed with wooden benches for our pensioners to relax while they wait to uplift their pensions at the Blairmont Post Office.
I think this is highly commendable by Nowrang Persaud which is an outstanding demonstration to show that pensioners, our senior citizens, need to be treated with respect and dignity, which is my opinion is sadly and generally lacking in our Guyanese society.
MP Harry Gill seems to be responsible for Region 5, but I may have to ask him to also lobby the GPOC for a similar shed to be built at the Acquero Post Office in the Moruca sub-region of Region One where our Amerindian pensioners from distant communities have to wait (at times in vain) for extremely long hours and exposed to the sun and rain to uplift their ,000.
I am impressed also with the representative actions of MP Harry Gill and the Good Samaritan demonstration by Nowrang Persaud. Let me kindly call on the Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC) General Karen Brown to have a waiting shed with benches built for the Moruca sub-region pensioners at the Acquero Post Office.
However, if this is impossible then a Good Samaritan is also urgently needed in Region One (Moruca –sub Region). MP Harry Gill, can you please monitor this plea for help?
