MOM hands over new house at Farm to single mother of 3

  • by

Forty-seven-year-old Nicola Fraser, a single mother of three from Farm, East Bank Demerara (EBD), is now the newest recipient of a two-bedroom house, constructed under President Dr Irfaan Ali’s Men on Mission (MOM) initiative.
Fraser received the keys to her new home on Sunday during a simple handover ceremony.
Brimming with gratitude, she commended the government and the MOM for their intervention, reflecting on the challenges she has had to overcome.
“On this Mother’s Day, I am very elated to embark on this new chapter of my life. I have always dreamed and longed for a home, or to own my own house. I truly believed that I would have already had my own home, but many obstacles and illnesses prevented me from working and derailed that plan,” a tearful Fraser expressed.

However, she never gave up hope. She held onto the vision of a future with her own home, a beacon that guided her through these difficult times.
“I kept my faith and continued praying that God would make a way and open doors for me. I am thankful that he did this through Men on Mission. I am utterly grateful to the president…and would like to thank all the other members.”

Minister within the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Public Affairs, Kwame McCoy said MOM is a driving force behind fostering co-operation and empowering communities. He added that this gesture reflects the mandate of the government to improve the lives of Guyanese.
“We have demonstrated over and over as a government our willingness and our ability to work in every segment of our society, to work with people, various stakeholders, to be able to develop communities and create wholesome families and to make sure that altogether it adds up to a country in which we can all be proud of,” the minister said.
Similar homes are being constructed in Regions Two, Three, Four, Five, Six and Ten. The MOM initiative was launched in 2022 to reintegrate men into society through skills training and productivity.
Beyond building homes, this group has impacted vulnerable communities through a range of vital humanitarian initiatives.
To date, MOM has piloted several campaigns and events to advance this agenda, including health outreaches, job fairs, and summer camps.
This year’s $500 million budgetary allocation promises even more support for vulnerable Guyanese.
