Mission Relief Ships Container to Jamaica

6/9/10: Container# TCNU870670. The Issa Trust Foundation of Florida and Iowa works in rural Jamaica supporting children’s health initiatives by leading teams to serve there. Also the Port Maria Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, and North regional Health Authority are friends of Issa Trust. We shipped this June container to Montego Bay for the summer teams traveling th,ere to work, and to elevate the hospitals in this region of Jamaica. Many infant warmers and other pediatric items were donated by the Pan American Development Foundation, and we were also able to ship down Issa collected items from Iowa. The pediatric needs are great and the Issa Trust Foundation was created by the principals of Couples Resorts.  The mission teams stay at Couples while working in the local communities, and they spend their days treating the area’s children.  We also want to thank Mr. Godfrey Wallace, the procurement officer for the Jamaican Ministry of Health for his support of our projects.  The feedback from this container was fantastic and we even benefited newly born triplets with the warmers. The school desks came from the mother house of the Sister’s of the Blessed Sacrament or Mary Katherine Drexel Shrine in Bensalem that is visible from 1-95.
