Clifton Boys’ Home gets 19 tablet computers
Residents at the Clifton Boys’ Home, in Westmoreland, have received 19 tablet computers from the Universal Service Fund.
The donation was made in response to a request from Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr Andrew Wheatley, after it came to his attention that a recent fire, which destroyed the home, had also left the boys without their computers.
The tablets were handed over to Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Floyd Green and representatives from the Child Development Agency.
He lauded Jamaicans for responding well in providing clothes and shoes for the boys who were displaced.
The 28 boys who were displaced are now being temporarily housed at another facility in Westmoreland.
