Minister of Public Administration and Communications, Maxie Cuffie has presented a cheque which represents ten (10) percent of his salary to Teacher Bishop Susan Trancoso of 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.”

A statement by the Minister's office says the handing over of the cheque was in keeping with a promise made to the nation by Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley in 2015 when he pledged that his government would lead by example even as he asked citizens to tighten their belts.

The statement says Minister Cuffie gave 10 percent of his salary for the month of March.
