For USAID 53rd Anniversary

On behalf of the Government and people of Jamaica, I am delighted to offer sincere congratulations to the US Agency for International Development (USAID) Team on the significant achievement of 53 years of outstanding service to helping to improve the lives of people around the world. The 53 years of service in the areas of health, education, trade, agriculture and food security, poverty eradication, nutrition support, water and sanitation, climate change, democracy, governance and human rights, conflict resolution and peace building among others, translates into millions of lives saved, and enormous amounts of human and financial resources invested in the provision of vital development assistance.
