Guyanese Nurses at the Florence Nightingale Home are now enjoying a more comfortable working environment, following a donation of equipment from RUBIS that signaled the Company’s commitment to the frontline health workers.
The donation of an air conditioning unit, refrigerator, and printer was made to the Guyana Nurses and Midwives Association, a non-profit organization established to look after the welfare of nurses, midwives and nursing personnel in Guyana.
RUBIS Accounts Executive, Joylyn Johnson, said the Company was happy to support the work and mission of the Guyana Nurses Association.
“RUBIS is pleased to provide some much needed support to the Guyana Nurses Association, as we truly appreciate the extraordinary contribution that the Nursing profession makes to the lives of Guyanese. It is our hope that items will be of great utility to the Association in fulfilling their mandate,” Johnson said.
President of the Guyana Nurses and Midwives Association, Donnett Graham-Gullin expressed gratitude to RUBIS for the generous gift, indicating it would allow the nurses at Florence Nightingale to accomplish their work in a cool and comfortable environment. The Florence Nightingale Home accommodates nurses who reside outside of the Georgetown area, and are working to complete their studies.
Graham-Gullin said the Association provides general support to its members, including yearly bursaries to members’ children, and yearly awards to nurses for exceptional performance during the year. Nurses are also afforded opportunities to network with other nurses within the region and across the diaspora through conferences, seminars and other initiatives.
