“We saw the initiative and we were very moved by the whole reason behind the Men on Mission with the government. And we learnt that this house is being built from scratch …we decided that we wanted to be a part of that upliftment for citizens who are vulnerable. It’s a sense of purpose to give back to the community and the government is really doing a great job with these kinds of initiatives… and we are so grateful to be a part of it”, he said.

Meanwhile, Public Works Minister, Bishop Juan Edghill noted that the initiative is a demonstration of the PPP/C Administration’s belief in humanity.

“We didn’t make this intervention for politics; we made this intervention because of our belief in humanity and that everyone deserves the right to live a dignified life no matter what their circumstances”, he said.

Dave and Selena, a popular store in the mining town also contributed to the improved livelihood of Hutson through the provision of appliances and furnishing materials.
