Community Care for Guyana Orphans

07 December, 2015 Guyana, Education
Due to economic and financial difficulties in Guyana, everyday living is a challenge for many and battling poverty, a daily grind.

To ease some of that burden on the communities and on guardians of orphaned children, the Central Islamic Organisation of Guyana (CIOG) has been operating the Orphan and Vulnerable Children Support initiative since the past 19 years where orphans receive a monthly stipend, transportation allowance, school fees, vitamins, food hampers and back to school packages.

IDRF is pleased to be working with CIOG to give a better living to orphaned kids in Guyana. On their recent visit, IDRF staff and Chair of the board visited the CIOG run schools for orphans and were delighted to see the progress of the children, and that CIOG helps all poor kids, irrespective of race, faith or abilities.
