Half Moon reopens SOS house

As the nation celebrates Child's Month, Half Moon, A RockResort reaffirmed its commitment to caring and protecting the nation's children by reopening its house at the SOS Children's Village in St James.

The house, which will be home to eight children between the ages of five and eight years, will be maintained by the resort. Delivering the keynote address at the event, chairman of the Child Development Agency (CDA), Maxine Henry-Wilson, made the call for Jamaicans to show more concern for the nation's children and be more vigilant in reporting child abuse.

Henry-Wilson lamented at the recent increase in crimes committed against the nation's children and urged Jamaicans to not "see and blind and hear and deaf", but to engage the relevant authorities as the nation works together to make Jamaica a safe haven for its children.

She further encouraged corporate entities to assist children in state care who need to pursue higher education but face financial challenges.

The Half Moon House was first opened in 1972, but closed in the late 1990s. General manager of the resort, Sandro Fabris, gave the resort's commitment to do whatever it takes to provide for the children who will occupy the house.
