Minister of State in the Ministry of Education and Youth, Floyd Green says he was traumatized at what he saw when he visited the Walkers Place of safety that was engulfed in flames in the early hours of Tuesday morning killing two wards of the State.

The Minister writing on his official Facebook account said when he arrived at the Walkers Place of Safety at 1 am Tuesday morning he called the Prime Minister Andrew  Holness to alert him of the distressing news that the home was engulfed in flames.

He went on to say that shortly after his worse fears were realised as word came that two of the children housed there had perished in the fire.

He said: “It is by far the most traumatic thing I have experienced and my deepest condolences go out to the families of the deceased.”

The Child Protection and Family Services Agency has provided a team of social workers who started counselling sessions with the 34 children and staff, from early as 3 AM this morning.

A team of clinical pyschologists have since visited and started working with the children according to Green.

He said Prime Minister Holness and Mrs Holness toured the facility and provided tremendous support to the children and the efforts of his ministry.The PM has also committed that the Government will do all possible to assist the children.

Green further stated that steps have been taken to relocate the 34 children to three homes in the corporate area.

He said Counselling will continue as we help the children cope with the trauma.

If anybody can help please, call 948-2841.
