Yesterday morning, President Dr. Irfaan Ali handed over to 85-year-old Meena Bafan, the keys to her newly rebuilt home at Herstelling East Bank Demerara.
The home was rebuilt by the Men on Mission (MoM), after the President saw its state during an outreach in late November.
On December 1, the Head of State led the dismantling and reconstruction of the home before the team of voluntary workers completed the project.
While handing over the keys today, the President emphasised that the project will be replicated. He explained that the MoM will construct 150 homes across Guyana for vulnerable persons who have their own lands.
He also lauded the collaborative effort of the private sector and the Government of Guyana, including the police force.
“I think this is a real testimony to who we are as a people, as a country, when we can come together like this, and to work with the private sector…this is what is going to transform our country and the way we think and feel about each other.”
