Kissoondai Narine was hauled before the Anna Regina Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday after failing to hand over stolen cash her nephew obtained from an elderly Paradise, Essequibo Coast couple, during the course of a robbery.Narine, called “Pig mouth”, appeared before Magistrate Esther Sam and pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on August 16, 2019, she was an accessory to a robbery.The woman was placed on $300,000 bail and the matter was adjourned until September 4, 2019. Reports are that Deodat Samsundar, known as “Pig”, her nephew, who was allegedly armed with a hammer, attempted to strike the elderly man to his head, but missed, which resulted in the hammer hitting the chair the victim was sitting in. The prosecution is contending that immediately after, he robbed the couple of an undisclosed amount of cash before making good his escape. “Pig” was said to have covered his face with a toque, in which two holes were cut. The elderly man followed the robber in a vehicle.Police later arrested the man at his father’s home where they reportedly recovered the toque he used to conceal his face, and a knife the suspect had taken to the scene of the robbery.The robber’s reputed wife reportedly admitted that a pair of slippers he had left behind belonged to her and she cut the holes in the toque he used. Samsundar was charged with robbery under arms and placed on $1.5 million bail.

The project is also examining how these interventions can best be adopted and scaled up in resource poor settings to benefit women and children. As part of that process, the ACC team has been researching care delivery around the world. Today, we have published eight case studies highlighting various methods of delivering antenatal and postnatal care in a variety of settings:Focused antenatal care in Tanzania—Delivering individualized, targeted, high-quality careGroup care: Alternative models of care delivery to increase women’s access, engagement, and satisfactionHealth Extension Workers in Ethiopia— Delivering community-based antenatal and postnatal careJacaranda Health—A model for sustainable, affordable, high-quality maternal health care for Nairobi’s low-income womenLady Health Workers in Pakistan—Improving access to health care for rural women and familiesPostnatal care in Nepal—Components of care, implementation challenges, and success factorsThe Developing Families Center—Providing maternal and child care to low-income families in Washington, D.C.The Manoshi project—Bringing quality maternity care to poor women in urban BangladeshMembers of the ACC project team will be attending the ICM Congress in Prague, Czech Republic next week. These case studies will be discussed in detail during our session on Thursday, 5 June, 8:30am – 12:00pm in Room 4.3. We hope to see many of you there!Share this:
