Jamaica: Sarah’s Children hands over $4m worth of tablets to children across Ja

Montego Bay-based international charity organisation, Sarah’s Children, has donated tablets worth some $4 million to children across Jamaica to assist them in accessing and navigating online education, which became essential with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The presentation of the devices to the recipients, including many in Montego Bay, St James, took place recently, and was the culmination of a one-year collection drive involving donations by Jamaicans at home and overseas.

Major contributions to the initiative were received from overseas-based donors, including California-based businesswoman, Patricia Perry, and The Whole Woman’s Natalie McKenzie; transport company, Knutsford Express, which delivered the devices to towns across Jamaica within its bus routes; and shipping company, RSD Express, which provided international shipping services free of cost.
