Guyana Women Miners Organization is doing outstanding work

Dear Editor,

I write to congratulate the members of the Guyana Women Miners Organization (GWMO) on their outstanding work of helping young helpless girls, although they are placing their safety at risk. It takes more than courage to do what these wonderful ladies are doing without much support from the relevant authorities. Imagine persons are calling on these ladies for help instead of the police and the Ministry of Human Services. It is very disturbing to see that little is done on the ministry’s behalf to stop TIP. It seems as though these ladies are the only hope for girls who are kept against their will in the interior, since no other group or person has done what the GWMO is doing.

It is sad that the majority of miners who are men are pretending this heinous situation does not exist and do nothing to help the girls involved, who could be their sisters or relatives. Ms Simona Broomes and organization, keep fighting this nasty yet worthy fight, for your reward will be great!

Yours faithfully,
Anthea Spencer
