ExxonMobil Guyana has made a contribution of more than GY$10M to the Civil Defence Commission in support of flood relief efforts across Guyana.
President of ExxonMobil Guyana, Alistair Routledge, handed over the cheque to Director General of the CDC Lt. Col. Kester Craig at their headquarters on Wednesday. “The magnitude of this flood and how it continues to affect so many people across Guyana is truly sad to see. We recognize that there are so many needs at this time, and we are pleased to support the efforts of the Civil Defence Commission in bringing much needed relief to those affected,” Routledge was quoted as saying in a press release.
ExxonMobil Guyana has supported training for the CDC’s Voluntary Emergency Response Team (VERT), which Lt. Col Craig indicated is instrumental to the agency’s response efforts. He also pointed to other areas of support over the years such as the CDC’s oil spill response capabilities and labelled the company a true partner.
ExxonMobil Guyana is proud to be part of a broader group of businesses that have come forward to help and we wish the CDC and the government every success in their efforts to provide relief.
