All social programmes in Dominica will remain unchanged under a United Workers Party (UWP) government, according to MP for Roseau, Norris Prevost.
Addressing a rally to close the observation of the Month of the Elderly, outside the Windsor Park Stadium on Sunday, Prevost assured those present that their social benefits will be safe and sound under a UWP Team Dominica government.
“UWP will continue all the social programmes and improve on the benefits they are presently getting,” he said. “First of all, I want to ask all of you to feel comfortable, and enjoy whatever Social benefits you are presently getting from government. Whatever benefits you are getting now, whether yes we care, whether old age pension, whether free hospital care, housing allowance of cost of living allowance, you will continue to get it under the new UWP Government. In fact, as the UWP creates jobs in the Economy, and improves the Economy, UWP government will improve the Social benefits to the Elders, the children, the youth and that are in need.”
Prevost, as a mark of respect for the elders, asked that everyone at the rally for their blessings on the President, Prime Minister, Speaker of the House, Leader of the Opposition, Leader of UWP Team Dominica, and all candidates for Parliament in the coming elections.
“Let us thank God for the blessings he has bestowed on you our elders, throughout your lives, and let us continue to live our lives uprightly, in righteousness and with the highest integrity,” he said. “I assure you our elders, and you can take my word for it, your benefits will be safe and sound with the United Worker Party Government.”
