The Management and Members of Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation, the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club salutes the Memory of the late Executive Chairman of Food-for-the-Poor (Guy) Ltd, Leon Davis and the contributions he made to the development of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS. Mr. Davis was a humble Guyanese who worked beyond the call of duty to make a positive difference in the lives of the poorest of the poor.
For over two decades, Leon Davis was a Champion of the voiceless, naked, clothes less and homeless, and because of his dedication many lives were changed for the better. Mr. Davis, who was buried last week, was a long term supporter of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club and along with our first official Patron, Mr. H.D. Hoyte, inspired us to get involved in touching and changing the lives of those less fortunate than us. Food-for-the Poor under his dynamic leadership provided the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club with millions dollars worth of furniture, sports gears, clothing, footwear, wheel chairs, personal care products, educational materials and agricultural tools among others that has assisted us to get involved in activities under the sub-headings of Education, Charity, anti-drugs, coaching, social, youth development, medical outreaches and anti-suicide.
Davis had a special closeness to cricket and he used his office to assist not only the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, MS, but cricket clubs across Berbice. Under his tenure, we received over $10M worth of cricket gears which was shared to over 57 cricket clubs in the ancient county. These gears enabled us to establish a strong nursery at the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club and to host a highly successful annual cricket academy. Davis also played a major role in assisting us to establish a Charity Kitchen to serve the less fortunate and also provide special gifts for our Annual Award Ceremonies, Tribute to Mothers, Tribute to Fathers, Tribute to Heroes, Tribute to Retried Teachers and Award of Excellence Programmes.
