VSO is no way associated with Lodge CDC or its building
In your Wednesday 27 June 2012 edition, there is an article entitled “Lodge CDC wants its building back.”
VSO Guyana is part of VSO International, which is an international development agency that works through volunteers.
This article incorrectly names VSO as taking a building from the Lodge CDC. VSO does not occupy the building, does not use the building, neither have we had anything to do with the building or with the CDC. VSO is not in any way associated with the building or the CDC.
Kaieteur News should have contacted us to verify the information before publishing an article which incorrectly named us at least five times.
A key way in which we work is in partnership with local organizations. We feel that this article can cause mistrust and damage our reputation and working relationship, not just with current partners but also with potential partners.
