Ground was broken on Monday (Jan. 30) for the renovation and expansion of the Woman Inc. Crisis Shelter in Kingston to house additional women and children, who are victims of violence.

Speaking with JIS News at the groundbreaking ceremony, Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia Grange, says the Government is committed to addressing violence against women and children.

She told JIS News that the Government is looking to establish three shelters to provide safety and counselling for women and girls, who are victims of violence.
