UDP Leader helping in the south


Hurricane Nana made landfall in the south of the country on the morning of Thursday September 3. While the storm did not cause much damage, there were some families that were affected. Seeing this and in an effort to maintain the connection with the people on the ground, UDP Leader-elect, Hon. Patrick Faber, paid a visit to the affected area.
Through his visit, Hon. Faber along with Dangriga Area Representative, Hon. Frank ‘Papa’ Mena, and Minister of NEMO, Hon. Edmund ‘Clear the Land’ Castro, visited some of the affected families. Hon. Faber explained that on spending time in the affected area, he saw the need for immediate assistance to be dispatched to the area and through NEMO materials would be provided for 95 households, which were affected by Hurricane Nana. Additionally, the United Democratic Party would make a donation to cover the labor that would be needed to repair the 95 home that were damaged. “We stand firm with our brothers and sisters in the south affected by Nana,” stated Hon. Faber in a Facebook post.
The visit to the south coincides with a united front being put out in Dangriga where Hon. Frank Mena will once again contest the division. This comes as current Dangriga Mayor, Francis Humphreys, has decided to unite with the area rep to once again deliver the division for the UDP.
