It is Maternal and Child Care Month for the Non-Profit Organization, Rotary. Rotary has a youth arm, Rotaract, which has many Clubs around the world.

Two Saturdays ago, the Jamaica Southwest Rotaract Club Members visited the West Haven Children’s Home for the Disabled to commemorate this month’s Rotary theme. The Home is located in Copse Lethe, Hanover, Jamaica.

The Rotaract Club Members also had the pleasure of working with a Missionary group from Oak Point in Michigan who took along 50 volunteers to work at the facility.

They enjoyed giving back and sharing with the kids.

Some Jamaicans kept the the tradition of going to work on Labour Day by helping to give Jamaica a facelift, painting and doing repairs to Public buildings, roads, their offices, homes and more.

Kudos to all who could have used it as a rest day but decided to take on the manual labour.

Out of the many great Projects that Suga saw happening on that day, Suga would like to highlight the Repainting of parts of the Savanna-la-Mar Hospital by the Rotaract Club of Savanna-la-Mar and the Repainting of a Pedestrian crossing that was a joint project between the Rotaract Clubs of St. Andrew, Liguanea Plains, St. Thomas and New Kingston.

Sometimes Jamaicans may see Pedestrian crossings and still choose to cross the road at another point and put themselves in danger.

Hopefully the brighter Pedestrian crossings as a result of the work done on Labour Day will remind Jamaicans that they should cross there.

Remember to do your part to help Build a Better Jamaica.
