Corporate Hands: Food For the Poor Supports School, Infirmary
A new sanitation block was recently opened at the Paisley All-Age School. After 69 years of operating with pit latrines, the school which is located in Luna district, St Mary, has been upgraded with a modern bathroom facility from the $100 million sanitation block project launched by the Ministry of Education in partnership with the Jamaica National (JN) Foundation and Food For The Poor (FFP) Jamaica.
On May 3 the new facility was officially handed over to the school.
Manchester Infirmary also revived a new SUV from FFP, in its continued effort to enhance public health and improve patient care in Jamaica. The 2007 Mitsubishi Grandis was handed over to the facility on April 17 at the charity's office in St Catherine. Funds used to purchase this new vehicle came from donors across the world and members of corporate Jamaica. The vehicle will be used for the sole purpose of transporting residents of the infirmary to their clinic appointments, church services and in cases of emergency.
