Spreading the Easter cheers.
MORE children are smiling today, thanks to President Bharrat Jagdeo’s longstanding tradition of spreading Easter cheer to some of Guyana’s less fortunate.
The President, accompanied by People’s Progressive Party/Civic Presidential Candidate, Mr. Donald Ramotar, distributed kites to more than 250 children on the East Coast of Demerara on Friday, so they could go kite-flying tomorrow.
Unlike his multiple-stop mission Thursday, the President made one stop at Lusignan, where hundreds of screaming children, from as far as Mahaica, were gathered awaiting his arrival, and, of course, their kites.
And President Jagdeo did not disappoint, as, braving the blazing sun, His Excellency, ably assisted by Mr. Ramotar, made sure that every child present got a kite.
After about an hour of distribution, hugs and kisses from grateful children and their parents or guardians, the President and Mr. Ramotar departed the community to cheers and waves
