  • by

Some 160 personal hygiene kits were distributed to women and girls and 200 baby kits to expecting mothers across Regions Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) and Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) by Food For The Poor Guyana Inc.
FFTP on Monday said that this move is part of a concerted effort to uplift and empower vulnerable communities. The Region Seven distribution benefited women and girls from the communities of 72 Miles, Kangaruma, and the township of Bartica. In Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), women and girls from the communities of Princeville, Campbell Town, Muruwa, Tuseng, Turuka, and Bamboo Creek received support, while in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo), the beneficiaries were from the communities of Annai and Nappi. The items were distributed through the various health facilities in the communities.

According to FFTP, recognising the unique challenges women and girls face in these hinterland regions, it remains dedicated to addressing critical needs and ensuring access to essential resources. The personal hygiene kits serve as crucial means of promoting health, hygiene, and dignity among women and girls, while the baby kits offer essential supplies to expecting mothers, they also contribute to the well-being of both mother and child.
The organisation stated that by extending support to vulnerable populations, particularly in remote and underserved regions, it underscores its unwavering commitment to enhancing the quality of life for all Guyanese citizens.
