Gov’t committed to continue offering inclusive solutions to disabled community

March 25, 2023

Government has signalled its commitment to continue working with the local disabled community in offering transformative and inclusive solutions.

This was the sentiment of Minister of People’s Empowerment and Elder Affairs Kirk Humphrey.

He was speaking this morning as members of his Ministry in collaboration with the National Disabilities Unit (NDU) staged a procession starting from Cheapside in the City to Lower Collymore Rock, St. Michael where they hosted an entrepreneurial market and exhibition for the disabled.

Scores of placard-bearing officials marched the streets of Bridgetown earlier today in support of the cause, spreading the word of the service offerings of the NDU.

Minister Humphrey says it was Government’s intention to make the activity an annual one, highlighting the importance of providing avenues for the disabled community to showcase their abilities.

Director of the NDU John Hollingsworth stressed the importance of creating sustainable employment for members of the disabled community.
