Guyana Citizens’ Initiative for Flood Relief
Mattress Project


The GCIFR is a newly formed non-governmental organization that has been focusing on current and long-term measures to alleviate the effects of the flood and its impact on the affected population.
The GCIF has a working relationship with the Guyana government, non-governmental and international organizations as well as network with affected communities through their representatives.
The Mattress Project of the Guyana Citizens Initiative for Flood Relief (GCIFR) began on Tuesday, February 22, 2005 after community groups, working with affected residents, identified mattresses as one of the items urgently needed.
A fact-finding mission by members of the GCIFR found that many residents were either forced to discard their mattresses soaked with polluted flooded waters or at best wash and use them again.

Though washed, many of those mattresses still pose a serious health hazard.

 

As part of efforts to satisfy this basic need because many of the residents cannot afford to purchase new mattresses at this critical period, the GCIFR distribute the first of 76 mattresses through grant financing of $500,000 by the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce

The two communities initially identified to benefit from the Mattress Project are Good Hope Phase 2 and Plaisance on the East Coast Demerara.
The GCIFR urges other institutions and individuals to join the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce in providing additional financing of at least GUY$6,600 (US$33) to purchase a double mattress for at least one flood-affected family.
As more funds are acquired, this project will expand to other communities. URGENT FUNDING is needed and United Caribbean Trust appeals to the Guyana Association of Barbados Inc to assist in this project.
