SUPPORT GROWING for Help JA Children
Kingston, Jamaica:— Support for the Help JA Children movement is growing, as more groups and members from the private sector come on board to support the organisation’s march and rally in Kingston on Tuesday, May 1.

Brandon Allwood, Help JA Children’s chief advocate said that groups such as The Jamaica Youth Advocacy Network (JYAN), Generation2000 (G2K) and the People’s National Party Youth Organisation (PNPYO), the Jamaica Association of Young Professionals and more have committed to support and participate in Help JA Children activities.

“We have the confirmed support of the Jamaica Youth Advocacy Network (JYAN), G2K, the PNPYO, Angels of Love, Women for Women, The Miss Jamaica Universe pageant and the Jamaica Association of Young Professionals. We also have the support of several service clubs such as the Optimist, Rotary and Lion clubs, and many many ordinary Jamaicans both here and overseas,” Allwood said.

Each of these organisations will be sending representatives to take part in the march, including all 17 contestants in the Miss Jamaica Universe competition. Allwood also said that the Help JA Children movement was grateful for the increasing support for the march, aimed at raising awareness about the state of Jamaica’s children. Organisations such as the National Parent Teachers Association previously confirmed their support.

Help JA Children was founded after an article in the media gave the nation a chilling reminder of the abuse Jamaica’s children face, especially in the area of sexual abuse.

Allwood revealed that they have approached several companies for assistance in staging the march and rally. He said so far two companies, Wisynco and Trade Winds Citrus have answered the call and will be providing refreshments for the participants of the march.

“These companies weren’t hesitant in answering our request for help. Within 10 minutes they responded and said they would definitely offer us some assistance to make sure this happens. It’s something that the Help JA Children movement is extremely grateful for and we hope that more companies will come on board and help us make this march and rally happen,” he remarked.

The march will take place on Tuesday, May 1 from the Bustamante Hospital for Children and end at Emancipation Park.
