The PSOJ COVID-19 Response Fund Has Raised Almost 200 Million!

The PSOJ COVID-19 Response Fund has been aiming to help those in vulnerable communities who have been affected by  COVID-19. COVID-19 has left many of our citizens without proper sanitation and food. 

As of August 27, 2020,  the Fund has raised $197.5 million JMD through 1,071 local and international donations. We are so appreciative of these donations as they have helped to provide 77,000 beneficiaries with food and sanitation products. The recipients of these packages are grateful as they receive them from the members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. This has further allowed for a better relationship between the police force and citizens. 

In addition, our 1,215 volunteers have contributed 29,700 volunteer hours in order to provide 71,000 packages across Jamaica. Moreover, not only have we aided 52 vulnerable communities, but over 46 NGO’s have been supported through the fund. They have been able to complete 781 health checks and have had 43,000 masks distributed. We have also partnered with the BREDS Foundation to provide skin sanitizers which are crucial to minimizing community spread. 

We appreciate all of the effort and support. We will continue the work. The battle is not over! 

Please spread the word and share the campaign to all those who might be interested in supporting! 

Everyone can donate at https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/standforjamaica.  

#TogetherWeWill #StandForJamaica. Regular updates on the campaign results will be given weekly on standforjamaica.com, on our local CVM Television channel at 8:45 pm EST, and on social media @thepsoj. Thank you for your support!
