KINGSTON, Jamaica — After 135 years of service to Jamaican children, the Roman Catholic Sisters of Mercy have decided to close the Alpha Boys’ Home at South Camp Road in Kingston.

The announcement was made by Minister of Youth and Culture Lisa Hanna at her ministry in Kingston Tuesday morning.

She said that the Government has been assessing the status of the 120 boys now housed at the facility to determine how many are suitable to be returned to their parents or be housed in other child care facilities.

The Alpha Boys’ Home educational and music programme will however continue, Hanna said.

    This is available at….The SIMPSON-MILLER administration faces the difficult prospect of having to achieve fiscal discipline in order to maintain debt payments, while simultaneously attacking a serious crime problem that is hampering economic growth. High unemployment exacerbates the crime problem, including gang violence that is fueled by the drug trade.>>> The SIMPSON-MILLER government negotiated a new IMF Stand-by agreement to gain access to additional funds in 2013, although the deal will require the government to raise taxes and decrease public sector wages.<<<IMF has Ja in a bind, there is no return from this until the end

    120 boys. I wonder how many of those boys do have parent (s) or a home to go to? More youths on the streets followed by more crimes.
