The Lions Club of Mona continued to keep busy in their community last weekend with their Bottle Collection and Recycling Project, a partnership with the Church of Ascension.

Plastics contribute to a large amount of solid waste and take many years to break down in landfills or the ocean. So recycle and help to reduce landfall, conserve energy and conserve the environment.

Kudos to the Lions Club of Mona, Mona Social Services and Church of Ascension, as they continue to build a better community.

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

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.
