Open letter to the President

Dear Editor,
Greetings. The Amerindian Action Movement Of Guyana (TAAMOG) is kindly seeking Brazilian medical treatment for Thelma Rebeiro who is currently a patient at the Lethem Hospital for approximately four months since her transferal from the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) and has never regained consciousness to this day. Thelma Rebeiro, 48, is from the Macushi village of Shulinab, South-Central Rupununi, Region 9 (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo). Thelma Rebeiro did two (2) surgeries for gallstones in April, 2016. The first Surgery was done by a Medical outreach to the Rupununi in April, 2016 which was not successful on the claim that the Lethem Hospital does not have the necessary equipment. Thelma Rebeiro was then transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital in April, 2016, one day after the first surgery at the Lethem Hospital. Thelma Rebeiro’s second surgery at the Georgetown Public Hospital was successful but she has never regained consciousness. Thelma Rebeiro is currently at the Lethem Hospital in a state of unconsciousness and with no additional intervention by the Health specialists and authorities. It seems apparent that Thelma Rebeiro, an indigenous Macushi, is left on her own to die. The Amerindian Action Movement of Guyana is therefore kindly seeking your Excellency’s kind assistance for Thelma Rebeiro to have Brazilian Medical treatment.
The Amerindian Action Movement of Guyana is prepared to have the residents of Shulinab village sign a petition for Thelma Rebeiro’s Brazilian Medical treatment. Your Excellency, in the event an interview is required, TAAMOG is prepared to comply.

Yours sincerely,
Peter Persaud
