Jamaica Government To Deliver 100 Houses For The Indigent

Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Desmond McKenzie, says the Government will be delivering some 100 indigent housing solutions in 12 months for persons in need across the island.

He informed that over the last year 32 houses have been built and handed over to beneficiaries, with another 12 to be constructed by the end of the financial year.

McKenzie, who was speaking at the handover of a house to an indigent family in Long Road, Portland July 10 said that beneficiaries on the Indigent Housing Programme have served the country in various areas, such as health and security, and while they have fallen on hard times, the best care must be given to them.
