Minister of Public Administration and Communications, the Honourable Maxie Cuffie presented a cheque which represents ten (10) per cent of his salary to Teacher Bishop Susan Trancosoof Holy Faith Baptist Tabernacle.

Minister Cuffie made the decision after visiting the church and hearing an appeal for contributions to renovate the church, one of the oldest in the community. He said on the day he visited every single member of the congregation contributed to the building fund.

“They do very good work in the community and I felt moved to help them continue that work.”

The handing over of the cheque is in keeping with a promise made to the nation by Prime Minister, Dr. the Honourable Keith Rowley in 2015 when he pledged that his government would lead by example even as he asked citizens to tighten their belts.

“…as a symbolic gesture of our own willingness to share in the necessary adjustments my colleagues and I in the Government have decided that, with effect from January 2016 and for the next two years, we will each donate five percent of our salary to a selected charity, NGO or sporting body of our choice.”

Minister Cuffie gave ten (10) percent of his salary for the month of March.
