Poker Champ Helps Heart Patients

31 May 2006

GUYANA – As reported by the Stabroek News: "A philanthropic US based Guyanese who won $1.8 Million US dollars at the poker table has put some of his fortune to good use. Real Estate operator Anand 'Victor' Ramdin, who does business out of the Bronx, New York, won the sum at three recent poker tournaments.

"Now, he has put it to good use by donating US$100,000 to Guyana's First Lady Varshnie Jagdeo to take thirteen children and four adults from Guyana for heart treatment in Chenai, India as part of her Kid's First Fund 'Heart to Heart Campaign' that is currently underway.

"…The First Lady expressed herself delighted to be the recipient of his largesse on behalf of the lucky patients.

"…The 'Heart to Heart' party leaves today for India complete with Mr Ramdin, and they are expected to be there for about two weeks before returning to Guyana and New York."
