China Harbour Engineering Company Americas contributed $200,000 to assist Polly Ground Primary with its Labour Day Project - the building of a new retaining wall. The funds were used to purchase the well-needed materials such as sand, stone, steel, and cement. Work on the wall continued on Labour Day. - Contributed

Student volunteers from the NCB Foundation were all smiles as they participated in the construction of a two-bedroom house for a recipient in Barrobridge, St Ann, as part of the Foundation's Labour Day initiative for 2014. This project was sparked by a recent partnership with Island Grill, NCB Foundation and Food For The Poor (FFP), which produced a new house for a single father in Clarendon. The Foundation then decided to once again join hands with FFP by fully sponsoring one house, and this monetary donation was matched by FFP, which resulted in the construction of not just one, but two houses for beneficiaries in St Thomas and St Ann on Labour Day. In the background, other representatives of the NCB Foundation Volunteer Corps work alongside FFP contractors in St Ann to provide a new and sturdy home for the recipients. - Contributed
