More shelters for the homeless
We are pleased to inform our community that over the summer of 2021 the Jamaica Association in Switzerland assisted the charity Candle In The Dark (in Mandeville, Manchester Jamaica) commence construction work in expanding its building facilities towards alleviating homelessness in Manchester, Jamaica (read full story in the gleaner here).
Due to the impact of COVID19 the homeless in our communities have been adversely affected, which inherently increases homelessness. Through your monetary support, which we received during our JAS Christmas Fundraising and Zoom Telethon in December of 2020, the Jamaica Association in Switzerland was able to donate $1600 US dollars to the charity Candle In The Dark (in Mandeville, Manchester Jamaica) in helping to build additional shelters for the homeless and the mentally challenged. Without the support of you, our community, the Jamaica Association in Switzerland would not have been able to make this impactful contribution for a worthy cause. A very big thank you to all!
