Labour Minister Expresses Sympathy to Residents of Central Kingston

  

 

Labour & Social Security Minister, Hon. Karl Samuda has expressed deepest sympathy to the families who were displaced by the fire in Central Kingston early Monday morning. A team from the Ministry visited the community on Monday to conduct assessments, and has mobilized its emergency relief mechanism.

The team will be visiting the 17 families who were left homeless and will provide them with hygiene kits and bedding this afternoon.

“The continuous acts of violence on the Jamaican citizens must be put to rest, and so I am urging Jamaican citizens to join with the Government of Jamaica and the Police by providing information on those responsible so that they can be brought to justice for this gruesome act,” Minister Samuda said.
