The Ministry of Social Cohesion, Culture, Youth and Sport will be collaborating with non-profit, HEAL Guyana, to execute the organisation’s National Call for Peace initiative.

Spearheaded by HEAL Guyana, the project advances the fight to end racial discrimination in the country. The timing of the initiative coincides with the impending election season.

“We know that during the period of elections, tension rises among our people, and there are some persons who make every effort in creating racial mischief.
