The ruins left of a family’s home in Jamaica after a fire destroyed it recently.

Last Tuesday,  October 16 was World Food Day and Rotary had a goal to collect 2 tonnes of food.

The Rotaract Club of May Pen partnered with the Rotaract Club of Ibicarai, Brazil (@rotaractibi) and donated food items, weighing ~28kg to a mother and her 5 children who recently lost their home and possessions to a fire.

They also donated clothing to the family and stationery for the children.

The family was grateful for the donations. Kudos to the Rotaract Clubs of May Pen and Ibicarai to help a family get a start after tragedy.
