Sadly, two Guyana Peace Corps volunteers will be leaving in the next week. One will be leaving this Friday and the other will be giving the office notice early next week.
Both are leaving on the own accord, claiming that the crime situation has exceeded their comfort levels.
While I am happy that they are excited to be coming home and will soon be enjoying the benefits and security found here (relatively speaking, since here we have had some recent sniper activity), I’m sure they will be missed by both their fellow volunteers and the Guyanese.
Welcome home. I support you both all the way.
