SVP England and Wales is 'twinned' or linked with 15 local SVP Conferences in Guyana, providing both financial and spiritual support. Guyana is split into 10 Administrative Regions and there is an SVP presence in seven.
Similar to the SVP's 'one-to-one' approach in England and Wales, the core work of local SVP groups involves visiting and supporting families in need with food hampers, medicine and items such as bedding and school uniforms. They also run several care homes for older isolated people in the capital, Georgetown. More recently, the SVP is supporting refugees from neighbouring Venezuela where political unrest and rampant inflation has led to severe food and power shortages.
