    • build a network of medical personnel, religious leaders, other community leaders, as well as personnel from GuySuCo to support ex-employees in these sugar-dependent communities to cope with and adapt to disturbances or changes as a result of the re-organising of the Guyana Sugar Corporation Inc. and the sugar industry.

    The targeted groups are ex-employees from Skeldon, Rose Hall, East Demerara (Enmore) and Wales Estates, family members of ex-employees and residents in these communities.
