Transforming Lives: JLP Government’s Unprecedented Support for the Poor
In a remarkable proclamation, Desmond McKenzie, Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, extols the unmatched dedication of the Andrew Holness-led Government since 2016 towards improving the lives of the impoverished. This declaration was made during the inauguration of the Ocho Rios Night Shelter, a haven designed to provide secure accommodations for those living on the streets.
Dispelling notions that the government has turned a blind eye to the needy, McKenzie emphasized their commitment to elevating the less fortunate across Jamaica. The initiative to construct shelters like these for homeless individuals is a novel feature introduced by the Holness Administration, serving as a testament to their genuine care.
It’s worth noting that this profound dedication stands in stark contrast to a past incident known as the ‘MoBay Street People Scandal,’ which took place during a People’s National Party (PNP) administration. This unfortunate episode saw dozens of street individuals subjected to inhumane treatment, reflecting a stark divergence from the present government’s compassionate approach.
