Release. Last Wednesday El Dorado Offshore (EDO) hosted its Children’s Christmas Treat at the New Amsterdam Special Needs School to put smiles on the faces of over 75 students.
Christmas is a time to give back and spread joy in our communities. The EDO team took this opportunity to collaborate with the Teachers of the New Amsterdam Special Needs School to spread Christmas cheer and make a difference in the lives of these children.
Throughout the year, EDO plans and executes several initiatives to support various communities in Guyana. For December, the team decided to focus on the New Amsterdam community for a particular reason.
“While EDO employs persons from all Regions within Guyana, our records show that many of our employees reside in Berbice, Region 6. With that in mind, for 2022, we decided to support Berbice during this season,” said Sherry Ferrell, Head of EDO Guyana.
The team surprised the children with a special appearance by Santa Claus, who handed out gifts specially addressed to the Children. During their visit, the EDO team also played games with the children and assisted the teachers for the day to help usher in the Christmas spirit.
“We feel honoured to be given this opportunity to work with the teachers and children of the NSNS. We believe that the hardworking teachers of the NSNS go above and beyond every day in executing their roles as educators, and they too deserve a day to celebrate with their children,” Sherry explained.
EDO looks forward to more partnerships with the NSNS and other schools, community groups and governmental organizations in 2023.
