Executive Director’s Message 2021

Dear Friends of Jamaica:

We are seeing a clearing! The COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented in its scale and the challenges it presented. We are grateful for our community of supporters and extend heartfelt gratitude to all those who have served on the frontline. As things ease, our continued focus will be working together with our donors to serve the people of Jamaica.

I am pleased to present the 2021 Summer Newsletter with some highlights of our activities over the past year. At the time of writing this message, we continue to support COVID-19 vaccine distribution in Jamaica. We have also completed receival of another 3 containers of medical supplies which will be shipped to the island shortly.

I am extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve over the past year. Our dedicated team has worked tirelessly to deliver on our promises. Partner, sponsor and grantee relationships helped to deliver solutions for the evolving needs in communities across Jamaica. Our Board of Directors is a source of inspiration and motivation. Finally, I would like to thank our President, Wendy Hart, whose fervent patriotism and dedication to the AFJ is truly a source of hope.

I invite you to learn more about our work, our partners and our stewardship of charitable funds. Join us in making an impact and helping to build Jamaica, land we love.
