The team, which was visiting for the fourth consecutive year, provided medical services to more than 80 indigent persons who are regulars at the inn. Located at 2-4 Geffrard Place, Heroes Circle, Kingston, the facility assists clients daily by providing them with meals, baths, grooming and clothing whenever possible. Since it was established in December 2007, the facility has ministered to over 35,000 poor, neglected and homeless persons, some of whom visit daily.
