The Guyana Help The Kids (GHTK) is a registered Canadian charity with the goal of decreasing the neonatal and infant mortality in developing countries, particularly in Guyana. Founded in 2006 by Guyanese-born Canadian Pediatrician Dr Narendra Singh, GHTK’s major focus has been on providing comprehensive education to Guyana’s local physicians, nurses and other allied healthcare professionals. To ensure their long-term success, GHTK has assisted with the procurement of specialized equipment to further elevate the level of neonatal care.
The initial part of GHTK’s Guyana oriented initiatives has been focused at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC). GHTK’s donations have resulted in the opening of a new neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), which has been complimented by the establishment of innovative pediatric residency and neonatal nursing programs. GHTK’s efforts were successful in decreasing the neonatal mortality at GPHC by forty percent (40%) in its first year.
The implementation of GHTK’s shared vision with the Ministry of Health in Guyana has allowed the impressive expansion of its activities to regional hospitals in New Amsterdam, Linden, Suddie and West Demerara. NICU’s have also been established in all four of these areas.
The Annual Dinner & Dance Gala functions as Guyana Help The Kids’ main source of fundraising for the finances required to fund the pursuit of its mission to decrease Guyana’s neonatal and infant mortality rates. Since its 2006 founding, Guyana Help The Kids has generated and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars towards the improvement of Guyana’s pediatric care facilities.
