Members of the Community Based Rehabilitation Group, on the Essequibo Coast, observed the organization’s fourth annual conference, at the Queenstown community centre on Thursday.
In observation of the CBR’s fourth annual conference, the NGO, participated in a series of activities, inclusive of both cultural and workshop programmes, under the theme ‘The involvement of the disabled Community in Guyana’s Development.’
President of the local Community-based rehabilitation centre, Lloyd Griffith, noted that CBR came into prominence in the year, 1992.
Griffith further explained that the Essequibo chapter needs to be a little more ‘visible’.
He stressed that over the years the organization has experienced, both its advantages and disadvantages. “We learn from each other as we go on. Persons with a disability are not stupid. Despite our disability, we can do things.”
Griffith added that persons with disability have no barriers. Those who are not inflicted with a disability should look at disabled persons as human beings who are willing to do things to improve their lives.
Among those at the anniversary celebration were students from the New Opportunity Corps, who performed items of dance and song, the Region Two administration and personnel from the Ministry of Education. [Yannason Duncan]
