Two Guyanese mothers get new houses for Christmas – Check Details

Rominia Benedict, 29, her husband Parmannand Drepaul, 38, and the couple’s six children were on Christmas morning presented with a new and furnished house by President Dr. Irfaan Ali as a Christmas gift. The houses were constructed  under his ‘Men on a Mission initiative

One week ago, Benedict had appealed for assistance to ensure she and her children have some comfort for Christmas.

She had been living in a small shack that was not large enough for the family to sleep in comfortably.

Additionally, financial constraints made it difficult for the children to be adequately provided for, many times going without meals.

President Ali showed up on site Christmas morning to deliver the house to the family at Bloomfield, Region Six.

He said this was an example which shows the oneness of the Guyanese people as he pointed out that while it was his initiative, the house was built by a single individual and furnished by another.

He pointed to it as being a good example of the government and the private sector partnership.
