Politicians can’t manage FFP, so they say grapes sour

Dear Editor,

As one who has ties to the Portland Cottage, Clarendon, community I take umbrage to the criticism that some politicians have levelled at Food For the Poor.

The management of Food For the Poor has done, and continues to do a wonderful job providing housing and other assistance to Portland Cottage, Clarendon, and other communities across Jamaica.

These politicians are fuming because the cannot dictate to the Food For the Poor. The Management of Food For the Poor resists political interference. Some politicians want to steer housing to party supporters.

I say to these fuming politicians, provide the evidence of termite problems in the Food For the Poor houses.

The management of Food For the Poor should go public with the names of these politicians who are making demands of it for their party supporters — but I know they would not.

Continue to resist political interference, Food For the Poor, as you go about providing assistance to the most needy Jamaicans, regardless party affiliation.
