The event was the 500th activity organised for 2020 by Guyana most active youth and sports club and forms part of the month long celebration of the historic anniversary. The RHTYSC was founded on the 20th of September, 1990 by three times Guyana and Commonwealth youth service awardee, the St Francis Community Developers.
The award was specially created by the club after its Secretary /CEO Hilbert Foster witnessed firsthand the dedication and hard work of the employees of the Port Mourant Hospital during a one week stay in March, 2019. The Secretary had committed the club to organise an award ceremony every year for three outstanding staff members to then Doctor in Charge Devin Radhay.
The first ceremony was held last year May where over fourteen staff members were honored. Asst Secretary Simon Naidu noted that with the Covid 19 guidelines in effect, the club decided against hosting an indoor ceremony and as such a three member delegation visited the Hospital to hand over the awards.
Those honored were Claudia Ross – Midwife, Mooklall Kooblall – Porter and Evandey Halley -Kitchen Staff. Foster and RHTYSC Vice President Mark Papannah handed over the award and urged the awardees to uphold their high standards and to rededicate themselves to make sure that the Port Mourant Hospital maintains the reputation of good service to the general public. Foster stated that the institution has a permanent partner in the RHTYSC and its ten cricket teams.
Each of the awardees received a trophy, framed certificate of excellence, medal of excellence and a collection of special gifts along with a 10kg bag of Namilco Flour.
Doctor in Charge Mr. Sukheo expressed gratitude to the club for its continued support and wished the cricket teams continues success on and off the cricket field .The award programme was sponsored by the National Milling Company Ltd (NAMILCO) of Agricola, East Bank Demerara with support from Mr. Mike Singh of Mike’s Pharmacy.
Meanwhile, the cricket teams have announced that their next combined project would be the publication of thousands of Covid 19 educational posters that would be distributed free of cost across the county of Berbice. The eleven by seventeen posters would be printed at the F and H Printery in Georgetown and would feature national youth cricketers Jonathan Rampersaud, Mahendra Gopilall and Jeremy Sandia.
The posters would be played in all public institutions and distributed to schools, churches and sports clubs among others. Naidu, who heads the RHTYSC Covid 19 response committee, stated that the poster would seek to educate the general public on the dangers of the deadly disease and ways to stop its spread.
