Boyce: UDC for better living . . .
THE URBAN DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION (UDC) does more than repair houses and roads, says Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Senator Darcy Boyce.
Speaking yesterday at the UDC’s 15th anniversary church service in the Cathedral Church of St Michael And All Angels, The City, he said organizations such as the UDC and the Rural Development Commission (RDC) influenced people to better themselves.
“When you think about the UDC and the RDC, our minds go to providing infrastructure; but our minds should not stop there because the work the UDC is done with a very simple purpose in mind – to make people’s lives somewhat better.
“When someone knows there are people out there who care for them and will help them, in many instances they realize the capacity they have and realize they can also empower themselves,” he said.
