Prayers for Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian

20190902_032545.png

Hurricane Dorian battered the Bahamas yesterday with its Category 5 strength.

The slow moving hurricane, travelling at 1mph, sat over Grand Bahama this morning at about 3am creating havoc.

Reports have been made that Hurricane Dorian took the life of an 8-year old boy after hitting Great Abaco island after it made landfall.

We pray for our Caribbean neighbours, the Bahamas at this time, hoping that other persons remain safe despite the widespread damage caused by Hurricane Dorian.

Residents in Florida and the Carolinas, by the Southern East coast of the USA have been warned to prepare for hurricane-force winds.

#PrayersforEveryone

How you can Donate Clothing to the National Children’s Home after the Fire

20190812_115242
A fire that broke at the National Children’s Home on Friday, August 9, 2019.

A firefighter reported that the entire section of the upper floor of the two-story National Children’s Home was destroyed last Friday, August 9.

The Jamaica National Children’s Home in Papine, St Andrew is a facility that provides care and protection for children rescued from poverty and neglect. It was opened in 1973 as a branch of Britain’s National Children’s Home.

It is unkown how the fire began, but thankfully, of the 38 children housed at the facility, there were no known injuries. The children were between 8 and 17 years old and have been relocated to another facility.

The fire took place just 4 days after caregivers at the Jamaica National Children’s Home participated in a fire drill at the facility. The caregivers were equipped and able to act rationally and quickly when 2 children were asleep while the fire had started. They were able to save their lives.

There have been recent fires at other Children’s homes, so the Jamaica Fire Brigade (JFB) will be inspecting and conducting fire drills at other Children’s Homes soon.

The Children from the home are now in need of clothing items and toiletries as soon as possible.

*** How to Contribute ***

A Donation drop off point at 9 Christopher Road, Stony Hill, St. Andrew between 9am and 4pm.
