Jamaica: Displaced Sugar Cane Workers get Help

Displaced sugar workers in the Monymusk Sugar Dependent Area have received grants under the Economic Mitigation Programme, a Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries initiative supported by the European Union (EU).
Speaking at the presentation at the Halse Hall Great House, Clarendon, recently, Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Dr. Christopher Tufton, pointed out that so far 180 persons have benefitted from grants.
"We expect that approximately 623 persons will benefit from grants in the Monymusk area. We have issued some $27 million to those 180 (who have already received grants)," he stated. Female recipients received $170,000 each, while male recipients each received $150,000.
