Jamaica News, Kingston: Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton, Minister of Tourism, Hon Edmund Bartlett and Mayor of Spanish Town, Norman Scott are among the special invited guests confirmed to attend the official launch of the ‘Make Jamaica Well Again’ campaign and appreciation dinner that will be held today, Thursday, August 29 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston, beginning at 7:00 pm.
The dinner will conclude the Jamaica Health and Wellness Festival presented by the Word Alive Mission which was conceptualized by Bishop Jacqueline McCullough and was organized with the help of local partners including Best Dress Chicken and Hipro.
“The ‘Make Jamaica Well Again’ campaign is designed to partner with entities seeking to advance Jamaica under God in health, wellness and prosperity” said Antoinette Ennis, PR Director for Bishop McCullough.
“The mission is to change the hearts of Jamaicans by practicing love and helping each other through the living Word of God. We focus on supporting and strengthening the community by addressing their social vulnerability through meeting their health and wellness needs. We aim to reach out to the hungry, the emotionally, spiritually wounded and the impoverished. Our effort is two-pronged, through the campaign will also create a call for change locally and encourage Jamaicans and other humanitarian outreach in the Diaspora to play their part in helping Jamaica” Ennis disclosed.
The dinner, to be hosted by Jamaica Health and Wellness Festival in association with Jamaica Broilers Group and SWOT Business Solutions will serve to recognize the philanthropic work of over 200 medical professionals and volunteers who are currently in the island from the United States and the United Kingdom.
The 2018 Medical Mission, which started August 27, will concludes on Friday, August 31 in St. Catherine with the host venue being the Work and Faith International Fellowship in Spanish Town. Since Monday hundreds of citizens from the community have received free health care, medication, food, school bags and food care packages.
“Its a fact that some Jamaicans living in impoverish communities simply do not have the resources to get the medical attention they so badly need. I am pleased and delighted by the generous gifts and professional services being offered by this committed group from the US and the UK who are providing free medical assistance to those who are in need of it the most” Bishop McCullough said.
For the period 1997 – 2010 the international Gathering of Beth Rapha Church lead by Bishop McCullough have completed several medical missions worldwide through their Word Alive Mission / Outreach, serving over 30,000 persons in Jamaica and 2,000 in Monrovia, Siberia.
A new song will be launched tonight titled ‘Make Jamaica Well Again’ which will be performed by Bishop McCullough and Jermaine Edwards. Papa San will join the duet for the final cut.
