Today, staff of the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs and Governance paid a visit to the Ministry of Human Services and Social Security’s Children and Family Centre in Georgetown, Guyana. The Ministry donated approximately 100 toys to the facility to cater for children and families to whom the center provides a range of services. Administrator of the Center, Ms. Gentle explained that the donation comes at a good time, as the children at the center are always grateful for supplies not just during the holiday season but throughout the year. The women-led agency is one of the numerous facilities across the country that provide services for vulnerable children and families through funding from the Government of Guyana.
