Students of the Harrison Memorial High School in collaboration with The Women's Ministries Department and Community Services of the West Jamaica Conference, assisted in feeding 170 persons. During the monthly Street-Feeding Programme on Thursday, September 26, 2019 the team visited the Open-Heart Charity Mission, Orange Street, Montego Bay and the Cornwall Regional Hospital Out-Patient Clinic, located on West Jamaica Conference Grounds.
“It is a blessing to have Harrison Memorial High School on board, to participate with us in the Feeding programme,” said Mrs. Carol Smythe-James, Women’s Ministries Director of the West Jamaica Conference, “I believe it is an exceptional thing to give back to the out-patients and industrious workers at the hospital and also to the street people,” she ended.
Mrs. Kiesha Allen, a teacher from the Harrison High expressed satisfaction with the involvement of the students. “It is always a blessing to incorporate the students in projects such as these, so that they can give back to their country. We are cognizant that many of the patients left their homes early in the morning without having a hot meal, so it was a pleasure for us to share the meals with each one of them,” she added.
According to Shauna-Kaye Smith a student of Harrison Memorial High School “My experience on the Street Feeding programme was
wonderful, because it was a joy for me to see people being fed and getting warm meals,” she said. “I also think it is a good gesture to get the students involved in initiatives like these,” she emphasized.
Kyhlie Rose, another student also expressed her delight in being a part of the effort and declared her willingness to participate in future outreach. “The feeding programme was good, because the people were happy for the hot meals and also they enjoyed our singing. I will participate in this programme again,” she ended.
