God bless the minister!
This was the reaction today of 99-year-old Rosalie Bailey of Water Hall Land, Eagle Hall, St Michael as she was handed keys to her spanking new $75,000 home by Minister of Social Care Steve Blackett.
The elderly resident’s home, which she shares with six of her relatives, had fallen into a terrible state of disrepair.
However, hers is one of two St Michael families who have received support under Government’s Poverty Alleviation and Reduction Programme.
The other is that of 61-year-old Barbara Earle, who shares her home with eight other relatives.
