PM lauds Harry Ramsaroop for service to senior citizens

Prime Minister Samuel Hinds on Tuesday joined senior citizens at the Dharm Shala, a home of benevolence for all races, on King Edward Street, Albouystown, in their annual Christmas Day celebration.

The Government Information Agency said that in what has become a tradition, residents and other citizens from south Georgetown were treated to lunch and presents, courtesy of the operator of the home Harry S. Ramsaroop.

Making his 20th appearance at this event, GINA said that the Prime Minister interacted with residents and others present at the gathering.

GINA said that Hinds commended Ramsaroop and his daughters for their continued investment in the sustenance of senior citizens.

Pamela Ramsaroop, daughter of the home’s founder, gave an overview of the developments at the home over the last year. According to GINA, she stated that despite this year being the most challenging, the home continued to provide for its residents.
