Amerindian Heritage Celebrations at Micobie Village


GDF troops contribute to success

By providing sturdy and professional support to the villagers of Micobie, the 2012 Amerindian Heritage Village, the 25-man Guyana Defence Force contingent lent to the success of the Amerindian Heritage Day celebrations that took place there September 8.

The contingent arrived at Micobie in Region 8, several days ahead of the celebrations, and aided the villagers to effect several aspects of preparation which included building one bridge and repairing another, building booths, and sanitising the environment in preparation for receiving the dignitaries and other visitors who converged there to partake in the celebrations.

Additionally, members of GDF medical Corps provided medical and dental services for the residents of the community.
