U.S.-Guyana Collaborate with NGO to Assist Senior Citizens in Linden

On November 1, Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch along with members of the United States Embassy Civil Affairs Team and the Non-Governmental Organization Humanity First Guyana conducted a medical outreach for senior citizens in Linden, Region 10.

As part of its ongoing humanitarian assistance to Guyana, the U.S. Embassy collaborated with the NGO Humanity First Guyana to provide medical assistance and equipment for over 100 senior citizens of Linden. Residents received several pieces of equipment to improve mobility, reduce falls, and increase independence. This equipment helps to improve the quality of life for senior citizens by providing them safe access to perform routine activities.

In brief remarks, Ambassador Lynch noted that the Embassy was pleased to give back to Guyana’s senior citizens who have contributed immensely to its development.

This collaboration underscores the U.S. Embassy’s initiatives to strengthen partnerships and work with the Government of Guyana at the central, regional, and local government levels to support enhanced public health for the people of Guyana.
