Reggae artiste Buju Banton is making good on his mission to assist destitute young men, through his eponymous foundation on Saturday, August 31, the Buju Banton Foundation presented a supply of school stationery to residents of the Mount Olivet, Boys’ Home in Manchester. The facility, established 52 years ago, provides care and protection for 48 boys age six to 18.

Administrator, Patrick Newman hailed the foundation for its gesture and stated, “Your kindness has not gone unnoticed, and we want to especially say how much this donation is to us as we plan towards our back-to-school for the new term.”

Newman continued, “It is unfortunate that we have children whose parents have failed in their responsibility to them. We at Mount Olivet Boys’ Home believe these boys have tremendous potential and, if given the right environment, nurturing, and love can fulfil their God-given purpose in life.” He further added, “Sincere thanks to the Buju Banton Foundation, and looking forward to future support as we work together in making a difference in the development of our boys here at the home.”

Rosemary Duncan, director at the Buju Banton Foundation, pledged to provide further assistance to the home.
