There has been a strong outpouring of support for the family of 18-year-old Venesha Clarke, who died on Monday after being comatose for six weeks.
Venesha and her sister Nyiesha were mowed down by a truck on July 17 along the Old Harbour Road in St Catherine.
They were both taken to the Spanish Town Hospital but Venesha, who received the brunt of the impact, had to be transferred to the Kingston Public Hospital.
Her mother, 43-year-old Juliet Clarke, a security officer, was at Venesha's bedside throughout the ordeal and in the process depleted her income.
Since the story was published on Tuesday, Jamaicans have pledged to assist in anyway they can.
The grieving mother welcomes the assistance. Contributions may be lodged at NCB account number 47 444 7162.
