Guyana Watch Inc.

August 30, 2012

A prominent real estate rental company located in the New York City borough of Queens, Zara Realty currently maintains a number of high quality properties in the neighborhood of Jamaica. Founded in 1981 by George Subraj, Zara Realty has grown into one of the most recognizable names in Jamaica rental services. In addition to his success with Zara Realty, Subraj has also demonstrated a firm commitment to humanitarian work, namely in his home country of Guyana in South America. In particular, he joined the Medical Outreach Team of Guyana Watch Inc. in 1992.

Since its inception nearly two decades ago, Guyana Watch has operated as an international nonprofit organization designed to provide medical assistance and health care to the people of Guyana. To accomplish its mission, Guyana Watch draws on a network of outreach clinics in the South American country, supplying 10 to 15 doctors and providing free medical treatment for some 3,000 people each year. In some cases, Guyana Watch also supplies funding for complex procedures such as heart surgery, which can require overseas travel and visits to specialists. In 1998, Guyana Watch successfully sponsored a team of ophthalmologists who performed nearly 60 cataract surgeries in Guyana and other countries around the world.

In addition to the organization’s work with medical treatments and health care, Guyana Watch also supports education in medicine and related sciences. To bolster the educational efforts of the University of Guyana Berbice, Guyana Watch financed the construction of a large computer workstation and laboratory. In 2007, Guyana Watch established a pair of scholarships in biology and chemistry at the University of Guyana Berbice as well as the school’s Georgetown Campus.
