IN appreciation of her services to Guyanese while she held the portfolio of Minister of Human Services and Social Security, Education Minister Priya Manickchand was honoured by the New York Guyana Medical and Humanitarian Mission (NYGM) at a ceremony, at the Hotel Tower on Saturday evening.
Minister Manickchand has been a strong supporter of the mission's work.
Her passion for the welfare of children has led her to express deep satisfaction with the NYGM 2011 mission.
Minister Manickchand also offered suggestions to the organisation for future missions to Guyana.
“I’m really honoured here tonight for being gifted with a plaque for doing something I’m privileged to do”, Minister Manickchand noted.
Acknowledging that she could not have done it alone, Minister Manickchand commended and expressed gratitude to all the workers whose efforts contributed to her being singled out for the honour.
NYGM is a non-profitable non-governmental organisation incorporated in New York. Its mission is four-fold: to provide cultural, educational, medical and humanitarian services to countries within the Caribbean, New York, and Guyana.
Almost all of the resources contributed for the organisation's charitable work are donated by its members. They are Sarah Persaud, Natalie Poonam Phagu, Samantha Persaud, Dr. Tara Singh, Shana Persaud, Jean Ramdeo, Holly Persaud, Dr. Mala Shewram and Dr. Anila Ramphal.
