Updated: Apr 21

In a heartwarming display of compassion and community spirit, First Lady Arya Ali on behalf of First Son Zayd Ali, orchestrated the third Lemonade Sale at State House, Georgetown Guyana, igniting a wave of support for animal welfare initiatives across the nation. With unwavering dedication, the event garnered an astounding $6 million (GYD), a testament to the collective commitment to creating a safer and more nurturing environment for our furry friends.

At the forefront of this noble cause stands the Rosewood Foundation Guyana, a beacon of hope for countless animals in need. Founded in 2017 by passionate advocates Donna and Ileana, the foundation embodies a tireless pursuit of animal welfare through education, rescue, and care. Through their network of volunteers, foster caregivers, and local veterinarians, Rosewood Foundation Guyana has become a lifeline for vulnerable animals, providing them with love, shelter, and a chance for a brighter future.

The generous contribution from the Lemonade Sale will empower Rosewood Foundation Guyana and 5 other esteemed animal welfare organizations to amplify their impact, reaching even more animals in need of assistance. President of the Rosewood Foundation- Donna Lam, alongside Adoptions & Rescues Coordinator Christopher Persaud and Volunteer Nafeeza Balram, gratefully accepted this invaluable support, recognizing the profound difference it will make in the lives of countless animals.

As we reflect on the profound impact of the Lemonade Sale, we extend our deepest gratitude to First Son Zayd Ali, First Lady Arya Ali, and their team for their unwavering dedication to animal welfare. Their compassion and generosity have not only enriched the lives of our furry companions but have also strengthened the bonds of our community. Together, we will continue to strive towards a cruelty-free society where every animal is cherished and protected.

Thank you, on behalf of the Rosewood Foundation Guyana, for your unwavering support and commitment to our shared mission.
