As part of GTT’s 30th anniversary giveback and in keeping with the company’s continued efforts to support frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has provided another 15 of them with new handsets.
The mobile handsets were recently distributed to doctors and nurses across Guyana.
GTT Product Marketing Manager Ubrina Khan related that the company was expanding its initiative in assisting frontline workers in Guyana.
“This is the latest in our ongoing way of saying thank you to our frontline workers for being there 24/7 throughout the pandemic,” Khan shared.
“Since the start of the pandemic in Guyana, we have opted to show our support for doctors and nurses on the frontline. In doing so, we promptly launched our Guyanese Heroes initiative that provides our medical professionals with free mobile service for as long as this pandemic lasts. We have pledged our support from the start and intend on continuing that support to the end.”
Receiving one of the handsets was Doctor Abel Caesar, who is attached to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC). Dr Caesar expressed his gratitude to GTT for its commitment to frontline workers in Guyana.
“Since the pandemic started in Guyana, we have been working tirelessly, and GTT has recognised and supported our efforts. We are grateful to you [GTT] for your gifts,” Dr Caesar said.
Among the others who received handsets were Christian Lawrie, Dianne Edwards, Shelisa Wills, Shianne Gangoo, Vanrick Baird, Anasha Venture, Aneesa Venture, Dame Hercules, Mahadai Singh, Dr Orlando Hendricks, Arlene Burnett, Dr Nalini Williams, Dr Rhyan Henry, and Dr Serena Rambarran.
Since April 2020, GTT has been providing free mobile services to doctors and nurses in Guyana in light of the pandemic.
