Curphey Home in Manchester restored for war veterans

Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the decision to renovate the Curphey Home for war veterans in Newport, Manchester, is an opportunity to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for their country.  
   
Mr. Holness, who was giving the keynote address at the restoration ceremony on Wednesday, noted that the National Housing Trust (NHT), which collaborated with the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) to carry out the work, saw an invaluable and unique opportunity to give back to the country's veterans.
   
The Prime Minister further noted that recognising the sacrifices of those who have given up so much for country is indicative of a society that is respectful, orderly and civilised.
  
The Curphey Home, which was founded in 1958, sits on approximately 100 acres in the quiet hills of Newport, and provides a perfect solace for all ex-service veterans who choose to live there.
