Could you please highlight this situation in 129 & 131 Mon Repos, North Jango Town, East Coast Demerara, about a pig pen and chicken pen? We the residents are uncomfortable and getting sick with the smell we are getting day and night from the pig pen and chicken pen with the pig down and stink pig food cooking! The NDC and EPA are not doing anything. We have been complaining for years.
We really need help!
Team Guyana South America calls on the relevant authorities to look into this matter as soon as possible. We also advise the person who owns the animal pens to consult with the neighbors on how the situation can be remedied. We must take into consideration how the activities we engage in can affect the health and comfort of the people living around us.
