Once again, fifteen teenagers gave 100% of themselves to raise $20,000 so they could go and give a helping hand in poor communities of Jamaica. Many thanks to the Orleans community for your support.
Thanks to their efforts, a destitute man will have a new shelter (a 12 square foot house), the volunteers at a children’s home will be housed in adequate sleeping quarters, the young girls at a home for teenage girls will sleep in still overcrowded but freshly painted dormitories, the patients at a small medical clinic will await their turn in a tiled area, and the residents in a poor community will keep their feet dry as they circulate between the school, the community centre and the medical clinic.
In a more abstract but equally important way, the participants brightened the day of residents in two old-age homes and in two homes for abandoned and abused children. They also visited students in two elementary schools in a disadvantaged district, where they delivered $1800 for Lunch Money raised during the Histoire sans faim activity.
