ALBION, CORENTYNE – Humanitarian Mission 2008 came to an end on Friday evening with an appreciation ceremony. The function was held at the Albion Sports Complex on the Corentyne.

Degise; a Certificate of Special Senate Recognition from the United States Senator Robert Menendez; and a Certificate of Recognition from the New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir Inc/Guyana Central Arya Samaj Humanitarian Mission.
Among those receiving certificates in all three categories were A. Ally and Sons of New Amsterdam, Imran and Sons Variety Store of Rose Hall Town, the Guyana Sugar Corporation, Dr. Ramesh Sugrim, and the Kaieteur News.
Thirty individuals were given single certificates of recognition from the New Jersey Arya Samaj Humanitarian Mission.
These persons were all honoured for their contribution towards making the Arya Samaj Humanitarian Mission a success.
Head of the organization, Pandit Suresh Sugrim, pointed out that the New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir, Inc. is not only committed to realising the third principle of the Noble Society, which is to learn, teach and to preach the Veda, but it is also dedicated to assisting those in unfortunate circumstances.
Over the past four years, the mission has assisted hundreds of persons in need across Guyana in a number of ways. These include the donation of a home to needy families, bursaries, and cash to offset medical expenses, educational supplies, footwear, bicycles, and sewing machines.
He stated that his organisation is prepared to freeze any assistance given if the articles are not made use of by the intended beneficiaries.
The New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir Inc. was founded 20 years ago. A local chapter was established at Williamsburg, on the Corentyne, on July 4th 2007. The Humanitarian Mission itself came into being in 2005.
Dr. Ramesh Sugrim is the President of the Guyana Chapter. Pastor Errol Inshanally is the Vice-President. The Public Relations Officer is Magistrate Chandra Sohan, and the Secretary is Pandit Kamal Dhanesar. The Treasurer is Parbattie Sugrim.
The New Jersey contingent of Humanitarian Mission 2007 departs Guyana tomorrow.
