RUBIS Guyana partnership delivers Christmas cheer to the visually impaired

RUBIS continued its social responsibility initiatives at Christmas in partnership with the Guyana Association for the Visually Impaired, through a donation of 25 Christmas hampers for their visually impaired members.

During delivery of the hampers comprising essential items in combination with festive Christmas treats, Joylyn Johnson, RUBIS Accounts Executive said it was an eye-opener for Team RUBIS to get a glimpse of the daily challenges facing the Association and its members. “The difficulties encountered by these members makes this philanthropic act worth the while especially for this Christmas period. RUBIS wishes the Association all the best for 2024.”

Association President, Mr. Leon Amsterdam said offering Christmas hampers to help brighten up the season for its membership was an initiative dating back for the duration of the Association’s existence. “The Guyana Association of the Visually Impaired is in existence for over two decades and over the years, we have been offering hampers and other help to our members. The ability to render assistance to our members is only made possible with the help of private enterprises. This year, through RUBIS Guyana Inc.’s generosity, 25 excellent hampers were provided to the Association. We hope you will continue to lend support in our biannual outreach to our members,” Mr. Amsterdam said.

Meeting with President of the Guyana Association of the Visually Impaired, Leon Amsterdam are Dhalia Shepherd-Austin, Earl Anthony and Joylyn Johnson of RUBIS.
