for flood relief, vaccines, other emergency interventions

THE National Assembly last night approved a $21.3 billion Supplementary Budget for the remainder of 2021. The funds will be spent on addressing a number of key issues, including the ongoing floods; the purchase of more COVID-19 vaccines; the execution of much-needed repairs to the Demerara Harbour Bridge and increased support for the Guyana Sugar Corporation.

As it relates to flooding, the House cleared a sum of $10 billion which will be spent on intensifying the government’s relief efforts, particularly as it relates to the provision of food, sanitary and medical supplies to those affected. The supplementary funds for flooding will also facilitate the execution of critical emergency repairs to a number of public infrastructures such as roads and bridges that have been destroyed by unprecedented levels of floodwaters.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
