The Nevis Island Administration (NIA) moved quickly on September 05. 2008, to house a Brown Hill family made homeless by an early morning fire that gutted their home and all their possessions earlier that day.

Minister responsible for Social Transformation and Deputy Premier Hon. Hensley Daniel, accompanied by Area Representative Hon. Robelto Hector and Director of the Nevis Housing and Land Development Corporation (NHLDC) Mr. Eustace Nisbett Jr., handed over the keys to a three bedroom house to Mr. William Ize-Iyamu, Ms. Diane William and their four children at the Harbour View Development Project at Ramsbury. Hr. Daniel said the speedy intervention was a demonstration that the NIA cared about the ordinary people of Nevis.

“I think the whole of Nevis must understand that this is where we reach down to the ordinary people of the communit, to ensure that their immediate needs are met. I believe Diane and William can sleep a little more comfortable with their four children knowing that we have been able to provide them with housing in a very short space of time within 24 hours.

“It is not always possible that we have a housing project where we have vacant homes but certainly we want to point out it is a strategic intervention on our part, so that we can get the family to pick up itself and move on”¦I would like to present you the keys to this house as an indication of our[the Ministry of Social Development, Minister Robelto Hector and NHLDC]  sincere gratitude to them and also a demonstration of our [NIA’s] willingness to ensure that you and your family are properly housed in this disaster. This is our real way of demonstrating we care and that we have come to serve the people and serve them expeditiously,” he said.

He explained that the chance to assist with the Festival presented a unique opportunity for the Company.

“This is the highlight of the Culturama Festivity and by our sponsorship of this event [senior calypso (kasio) competition], we see this as an opportunity to ensure that a show of the highest and most professional standard is brought to all the patrons who year after year look forward to and attend this event.

“Our sponsorship also assists in ensuring this very important art form is preserved for the benefit of our children and their children’s children,” he said.
