The New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir Humanitarian Mission has done a substantial degree of charitable work in Guyana since July 31 and its President Pandit Suresh Sugrim visited President Bharrat Jagdeo today to outline the companyE2s achievements.

Recognising that government has been building institutional capacity to support the less fortunate in society, Pandit Sugrim, during his discussions with President Jagdeo, offered his organisation’s patronage.
Since work began the humanitarian mission had undertaken medical outreaches to several of the unfortunate individuals including senior citizens who were for several reasons been subject to neglect.

In Berbice much of the outreach work was taken to communities in Cow Dam, New Amsterdam, Stanleytown Edinburg, Port Mourant and several other areas where residents are in need of support.
The work included a walk-a-ton against domestic violence and a blood drive to support victims in need, family group discussions and the remodelling of a house in East Canje Berbice, which is expected to be handed over on August 28.

“We are reaching out to let them know that there are other organizations and NGOs (Non Governmenta l Organisations) willing to come home and give them a second chance around,” Pandit Sugrim said.
He explained a touching story of a woman with six children who is struggling to make ends meet and who the humanitarian mission is determined to give hope.
