Twenty-four organizations were the recipients of financial assistance and stationery supplies when the Massy Group of Companies hosted its annual presentation ceremony at Massy Staff facilities at Ruimveldt.
Representatives of the organizations from as far as Essequibo, Berbice and Linden attended the ceremony which was addressed by the Group’s Country Manager, Deo Persaud. Persaud praised the recipients for continuing to work closely with the less fortunate in Guyana.
Mr. Persaud said that Massy has been a silent partner offering support to persons and organizations in need.
“This is not the only programme we do; Massy has worked with the Ministry of Education to provide schools identification and smoke free zones signs across the country. It has been hosting the annual 10K run featuring the nation’s top athletes. We see the race as a contribution to the athletes so they can be better prepared for international competition,” he added.
Mr. Persaud said the Group has also partnered with the Ministry of National Security in erecting road safety signs countrywide with an aim of promoting better use of the roads.
