AJA’s outreach efforts to Jamaica over the years have included: donation of medical equipment, hospital supplies and pharmaceuticals;  provision of nursing support to hospitals; provision of meals for the poor in infirmaries and prisons; provision of books, supplies and equipment to basic schools; and provision of relief from the ravages of flood and hurricane. A few recent efforts are highlighted below.

 

  • At the beginning of 2021, the AJA aided by Christmas donations from members and friends, contributed over $5,000 through Food for the Poor to assist flood victims in Jamaica.

  • In September 2020, in continuation of an initiative that started in 2016, the AJA Jamaica's Medical Supply / Support Initiative donated toiletries, adult disposal diapers and other vital supplies that were packaged into gift bags for needy citizens of Manchester, St. Elizabeth and Clarendon. As in prior years, this was done in coordination with the Southern Regional Health Authority (SRHA), a unit of Jamaica's Ministry of Health Fitness. Read more here.
