Ministry of Labour & Social Security Responds Urgently to Fire Victims in Kingston
The Ministry of Labour and Social Security’s team of Social Workers attached to the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Office was kept busy on Thursday, conducting assessments, and delivering urgently needed disaster relief supplies to families affected by two fires in Central Kingston.
The team delivered nineteen (19) mattresses, along with groceries, drinking water, blankets, and toiletries and cleaning supplies to the occupants of 33½ Rum Lane. Thirty (30) persons were left homeless following a fire which destroyed three houses and their contents early Thursday morning.
The team’s second stop was at 6½ Rosemarie Lane, where 21 persons had been left homeless due to another fire Thursday morning. Fifteen (15) mattresses were delivered to the householders, along with a quantity of food and drinking water, bedding, toiletries, and sanitation supplies.
The Ministry’s team has invited the affected families to visit the parish office for further assistance.
