Jamaica

Posted by [email protected] on December 2, 2015 at 7:15 PM

Friends brought three community missions to Jamaica prior to 2008. During the last, we met two priests from Poland building a church in Maggotty. A Jamaican of Chinese ancestry had given them land and some money to build a church. There were no Catholics there. Soon, the men were building a computer center and a makeshift medical clinic out of old 20 foot steel containers. In 2008, we brought our first medical. The clinic had lost its prescriber over a year earlier, so we had a good response. Jamaica's lack of work opportunities has compelled many people to migrate for work. They have left behind their children and their parents. These are the clinic's patients. Although most older ones are slim, Type II diabetes is the greatest medical problem. The clinic was updated in 2010.
