Prime Minister of Jamaica Andrew Holness announced that the government will provide more government assistance in coming weeks to help cushion the effects of the rising cost of living which will involve cash transfers.
The Prime Minister disclosed Wednesday that focus will be on poor and vulnerable Jamaicans to ensure that they can survive this difficult time.
He said this will be until matters in the geo-political arena are resolved and some stability can return to our global energy and food markets.
The latest programme is the We CARE Energy Co-Pay, under which the government assistance program pays a portion of the electricity bill for some Jamaicans over four months.
