Local businessman Vincent Hosang has called on his countrymen in the Diaspora to join him in sourcing funds to buy crucial equipment for hospitals in Jamaica.
Hosang said an initial request for help had to be increased as other needs were identified. “I am appealing to everyone especially our Caribbean brothers and sisters.
I have been asked to purchase a Linear accelerator machine for Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay, Jamaica costing approximately US$3 Million.”
“(Then) I met with the Minister of Health, Dr. Fenton Ferguson a few weeks ago. He asked if I would purchase two machines as Kingston needs one also.
If 500,000 people give a one-time donation of $10.00, we will be closer to our goal.” Persons are encouraged to send donations to Vincent HoSang Family Foundation (VHFF), 117 Route 303, Suite B, Tappan, NY 10983. The donation is tax deductible.
