The Guyana Foundation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Medical Sciences of Ciego De Avila, Cuba. The Foundation, in a release said that it reached out to the University two years ago to request guidance and assistance in dealing with the mental health issues that face Guyana and, in particular, the work of the Guyana Foundation’s Sunrise Centre. The agreement is valid for a period of five years during which time there will be valuable transfers of expertise and information to tackle the social issues facing Guyana. Persons will be selected from key villages across Region 2 to access training in Cuba to become professional counsellors. Workshops and visits by Cuban professionals will follow, the release said.
