Housing Condition Of Physically Challenged Man Changed Positively

PR – The living condition of well-known music drummer Aaron Barry, known as “Shaka Zulu”, is about to change positively. He is one of the latest beneficiaries of the Government’s Housing Programme on Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

Barry, who is physically challenged due to an incident suffered at sea a few years ago, is presently living in deplorable conditions, which can be considered unfit for any human. 

Noting the conditions, Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Government, Hon. Tevin Andrews, ensured that Barry benefited under the Housing Programme. 

A new house has been built for him in the Dumfries area, with a toilet and bathroom currently under construction.

Addressing the housing needs of the physically challenged and the elderly on the sister isles continues to be of high priority for the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Government under the leadership of Hon. Andrews. In this regard, in the Dover Community, the Housing Brigade led by Hugh Alexander is constructing a new house for Princess McGillvary. 

When completed, it will bring to seven (7) the number of Housing Brigade homes constructed since the programme started earlier this year.
