The New York chapter of the Guyana Coalition For a Jagdeo Third Term today donated US$15,000 to the campaign for a third term for President Bharrat Jagdeo.
The funds were accumulated from several businesses and supporters of the initiative.
Coordinator of the New York chapter Rai Bishnauth said the donation is part of a series of contributions that is geared towards the intensification of the campaign.
On the other hand, the local chapter welcomes the donation and is expected to receive in the coming weeks similar contributions from other overseas chapters, the most recent being the Trinidad and Tobago group.
The association expresses its gratitude to the local, as well as overseas contributors towards this grand effort to sustain, mobilize and implement a successful campaign that will bring the majority of Guyanese into supporting a third term for Jagdeo.
