Back in July, Julia Skeete told the Nation News that her crippled daughter Brianna, who suffers from cerebral palsy, was doing so well since she started attending The Codrington School, St John.
Ms. Skeete also stated that she was desperate for some government assistance because she needed help looking after her daughter. The Welfare Office used to provide a lousy $58 every two weeks to help with paying an assistant who is needed so that Brianna can continue in school, but for some unknown reason the payments stopped last October.
At the time, Mia Mottley said she would look into things – but Ms. Skeete never heard from Mottley after that promise.
Now we understand that the current David Thompson government just can’t seem to get it together for little Brianna either.
So both Mia Mottley and David Thompson can’t be bothered with helping the most vulnerable little ones.
Why do we have a society if not to assist those who truly need the help of others? The little girl has cerebral palsy for God’s sake. Why can’t we pay for an assistant so she can continue in school?
Oh well… we had a hell of a Cricket World Cup though, didn’t we?
