Poverty in the Caribbean (Jamaica)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDeJl_O0kc4

It looks pretty bad. I don't know this kind of poverty even when I used to visit my grandparents in the country in the '70's. The house is a shack and will fall down after a bad hurricane (typical tropical natural disaster). What is Jamaica doing to help such people? I heard that the Jamaican government has over a billion in their allocation. Simple low-income housing should be constructed without the politicians asking for anything in return. The Chinese could help in this area but who really wants to help the poor when there is nothing to be gained?
