As GTT wrapped up its annual Pinktober activities for the month of October, the company, over the last weekend, distributed 200 Pinktober bottles to three of its partnering Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) Oncology Unit also received a donation when the Giving Hope Foundation, the Guyana Cancer Institute and the Perwinkle Cancer Club did.
“This is another way of us extending our gratitude to these NGOs for their continued collaboration with us during Pinktober. We want them to know that we appreciate their efforts in spreading cancer awareness and providing care to patients across Guyana,” GTT’s Pinktober Coordinator, Diana Gittens noted.
Head of the Giving Hope Foundation, Dr Latoya Gooding acknowledged GTT for its generous donation, while pledging her organisation’s continued support for promoting early detection and providing full support to cancer patients in Guyana.
“We are grateful for the timely donation of 50 bottles for our cancer patients and survivors. Over the years, GTT has been supporting our cancer patients and survivors with sponsorship of radiotherapy treatment, CT scans, etc. Not only does GTT provide monetary support but during the month of October, they provide care packages and other mental health support for those affected by cancer,” Dr Gooding stated.
The GTT Pinktober Coordinator noted that the company would be donating another 100 Pinktober bottles to the Berbice and Linden Cancer Institutes over the next weekend.
While the month of October has ended, GTT took the opportunity to encourage persons to continue to donate to the Pinktober Fund.
“Donations can be made at any time to MMG+ merchant code 07693. A donation can help save a life,” Gittens noted.
