Sunrise CC Share Christmas Spirit In Guyana
Oh! Oh! Oh! As the horse-cart waltzed its way into South Georgetown
where Sunrise Cricket Club (SCC) of New York shared Christmas gifts
to kids in the area to complete their annual Christmas visit to
They had reached out to other needed children at the Georgetown
Corporation Hospital and Best Regional Hospital as well. President
of SCC Sunildat Ballie and Vice President Sohan Bheer were the two
men who cheered the entire two-day hectic proceeding.
SCC is not only part-taking in cricket but with giving gifts to
kids is a huge justification of their charitable work since its
establishment in 1989, founded by Ballie off the field.
On Friday 15, ten days before the Christmas holiday, Ballie and
Bheer gleefully walked into the Paediatric Ward in the upper section
on the Eastern Side of the Hospital, and began their main purpose
by handing out the Christmas gifts to the small children ranging
from 12 years to three months old.
Approximately 83 children flooded the ward with various illnesses
and were happy to be treated on this special occasion. Both Ballie
and Bheer were clogged into the Santa Claus cloths where the children
were hugged, kissed and plenty of hand shakes.
The nurses were very impressed with the moment shared by Ballie
and Bheer and implored they should continue to show the children
love and happiness at this time of the year regularly.
Jennifer Nelson, a surgeon Physician of the public institution,
told SCC that she and her colleagues were very please to see people
from the ‘North Cool’ have recognised the much-needed
assistance for the kids where they felt a sense of satisfaction.
“Me and my work-mates are very happy to see these two guys
(Ballie and Bheer) have travelled from that distance and journeyed
to Guyana to share gifts to the children in the hospital while at
this point of time I must, on behalf, my fellow colleagues like
to express our gratitude to SCC for their gifts for their children
while we looking forward for their continued sojourn at Georgetown
hospital again,” the smiling Nelson revealed.
When Ballie and Bheer resumed their duty on Saturday 16, the duo
headed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital where they were met
by several children in the Ward but as news spread rapidly that
Santa Claus were in the compound people began to pour in the Ward
and they were also treated with gifts for their children and grand
SCC recently toured Guyana for a number cricket matches included
