AJA’s outreach efforts to Jamaica over the years have included: donation of medical equipment and provided 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.
In the last two years, AJA made donations to Teen Challenge Jamaica, a one-year residential institution for the rehabilitation of at-risk teens and adults. www.teenchallengejamaica.com
In 2015, AJA donated $1,000 to The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), Community Safety and Security Branch (CSSB) to purchase bicycles for Community Based Policing.
In 2016, AJA assisted with the purchase of a generator for the Open Heart Charitable Mission. This Mission offers two hot meals and a shower to its clients at its facility at Lawrence Lane in downtown Montego Bay every day. It also runs the Refuge of Hope night shelter in Albion, where up to 50 men and 30 women are accommodated and receive 3 hot meals a day. http://www.openheartcharitablemission.com/about.html
