"What I'm experiencing now is a wonderful thing; a big big improvement on where we are coming from. I give thanks to the Prime Minister for joining with the European Union to provide this opportunity for us. I am sick and wheelchair bound and look I can move around comfortably in here. Hurricane ah come, I don't have to worry", said 58 year old Ercelyn Black, a former Field Supervisor at the Frome Estate as she sat beaming in her living room in Barham, Westmoreland. Ercelyn is one of 84 beneficiaries who will reside in the new housing units which were constructed at three sites in the parish under the EU supported Sugar Barracks relocation project.
Keys to the new homes were officially handed over this morning at a ceremony in Shrewsberry, Westmoreland which was attended by Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, Agriculture Minister Roger Clarke and Charge d'Affaires of the European Union in Jamaica, Jesús Orús Báguena.

After years of watching their community centre fall to ruins and having to resort to alternative locations for social activities, residents of Parade Gardens in South Central Kingston are today beaming with pride following the handing over of a newly constructed facility. The facility features a large meeting hall, administrative offices, and classrooms for training activities, sanitation amenities, a storeroom, and a hard court for outdoor sports.
The over J$46 million investment, was made possible through the European Union funded Poverty Reduction Programme (PRP), which contributed just over $29.2 million and the Citizen Security and Justice Programme (CSJP) which invested more than J$7 million towards the project. Also critical to the project was the community contribution in time and resources, estimated at over J$10 million.
Working together in Jamaica
PRP-II focuses on direct and concrete support to the residents living in volatile communities. The programme promotes community based projects where the communities decide what their needs are and put a project together.
