Blue Water Guyana makes impactful donation to rehabilitation centre

The wheelchair-accessible van overcomes a transport challenge for the Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre

Blue Water Guyana donated in collaboration with Stena Drilling a wheelchair-accessible van to the Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre. The centre in Guyana's capital, Georgetown, provides rehabilitation services and a strong community for children with physical/developmental disabilities, amputees and the hearing impaired.

“We support the centre’s work in providing a supportive environment where children with special needs can thrive and grow.  When we became aware of the challenge the centre faced in transporting wheelchair bound children to school, medical appointments, and just simply to participate in recreational activities outside of the centre, we partnered with Stena Carron Drilling to support the need,” says Jennifer Falconer, Senior Vice President Blue Water Guyana.


Empowering initiatives

This contribution is the latest chapter in a long-standing partnership between the Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre and Blue Water Guyana. Over the years, the team has closely supported the centre in various ways beyond mere financial support, including supplying equipment for IT, rehabilitation, and physical therapy departments, and have conducted training sessions for their dedicated staff. 

One of the most significant endeavours involves partnering with the centre to provide training for individuals with diverse abilities. Through this program, Blue Water’s aim is to equip them with skills that open doors to opportunities within the Oil & Gas sector, promoting inclusivity and diversity.

“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Center for their outstanding contributions. We feel privileged to be part of their mission and are steadfast in our commitment to supporting initiatives that generate a positive impact,” adds Falconer.
