Is this a caring society?

Dear Editor,

The question I would like to ask as a disabled blind pensioner is, are we a caring society?

On Monday, the 7th of August I experienced that we are not a caring a society. I was tracked and pick-pocketed in the heart of Georgetown, somewhere around the car park or Stabroek Square.

I had ten thousand dollars in my right-side pants pocket, with my ID card, and in the other pocket I had two thousand five hundred dollars.

I went into the Stabroek Market to buy a pair of yachting shoes which cost two thousand five hundred dollars. The one side pocket did not have not enough money to pay for the shoes and buy other things, as well as pay my transportation, so I therefore went into the other pocket only to discover the ten thousand dollars lost and the ID card still there.

It’s very hard for me to experience this situation.

Yours faithfully,

Laurie Greenidge
