Past event: JAS participation in the United Nations event “Reggae as an Instrument of the Collective Memory of Slavery”

On September 23, 2021 the Jamaica Association in Switzerland (JAS)  president, Dr. Warren A. Wallace, and JAS member Ms. Carol Simpson were part of a group of panelists for the United Nations event on “Reggae as an  Instrument of the Collective Memory of Slavery”. Through this event JAS was able to promote our heritage of reggae – a designated UNESCO cultural heritage of humanity – and its emancipating theme and global message of empowerment to rise above life’s challenges. We thank all those who were able to attend this event.

Past event: Christmas Fundraising and Zoom Telethon

The Jamaica Association in Switzerland recently had its Christmas Fundraising and Zoom Telethon on December 12, 2020. This online event, which was a wonderful time of warmth and fun with the diaspora and friends of Jamaica, was primarily aimed towards raising funds for the charity Candle in Dark: Shelters for the homeless and mentally challenged in Mandeville, Jamaica. The event, which had as MCs Jamaica’s Dervan Malcom of Power106FM and Claudette ‘CP’ Powell (formerly of Fame95FM in Jamaica), was a celebration of the beauty and culture of Jamaica through poetry, music, dance and irie vibes. A special thank you to all those who supported this event and worthy cause. One love!
