International PPE company donates 2 million face masks to Jamaica
Full Support Healthcare, an international personal protective equipment (PPE) manufacturer has donated 2 million type II face masks to the Jarrett Foundation charity, for distribution in Jamaica.
Earmarked for a wide range of essential services; the donation will be passed on by the Jarrett Foundation to the Jamaican Ministry of Health, who in turn will distribute the masks across schools, hospitals, and other key areas – ensuring those who need them the most will benefit from them.
Jamaican High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, His Excellency Seth George Ramocan, and his wife, Dr Lola Ramocan, Patron of the Jarrett Foundation, accepted the donation in Wellingborough, at Full Support Healthcare’s headquarters, on behalf of the Jamaican nation.
Speaking of the donation, His Excellency said, “Like many developing countries, Jamaica is struggling to secure vaccines. Therefore, our primary defence against COVID19 is social distancing, washing of hands and the wearing of masks.
“This donation is just what Jamaica needs now, as it tackles new variants from abroad.”
The Jarrett Foundation is an international charity with ties to both the UK and Jamaica – working with young people through the arts, mentoring programmes, and environmental projects.
