Nearly a dozen houses will be constructed for the less fortunate residents of the British Virgin Islands if the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) becomes the next government.
PVIM leader and former Social Development Minister Ronnie Skelton made that pitch on Wednesday while noting that he was “very concerned about the poor”.
“We are proposing to build 10 homes for the less fortunate in our society every year,” said Skelton, who noted that the proposal is quite doable.
“It’s not a whole bunch of money to do that because when I was here before, we built up to seven homes for single families who own their lands. So, I believe that we must bring the less fortunate among us along while we develop this country,” he said.
The PVIM leader was speaking at a media conference inside the party’s headquarters in Fish Bay.
