Food for the Poor donates to West Dem communities

Food for the Poor (Guyana) Incorporated (FFP), donated two hundred and twenty-six, 5- gallon pails of paint to a number of poor residents of Onderneeming Phase 2, Parfaite Harmonie and Bell West, West Bank Demerara, Region 3, on Friday 16th May 2014.

A release from FFP said that employees of FFP had previously visited, identified and interviewed those in dire need of paint for their homes. Approximately one hundred pleasantly surprised householders received paint.

The following day, Saturday 17th May, FFP revisited Parfaite Harmonie, where an Outreach Program was conducted. Over 500 persons benefited from the assortment of items provided by the non-governmental organization. Some of the items included rice, beans, clothing and household items to name a few.
