MOUNT SALEM, St James — More than 200 individuals were beneficiaries of a free medical and fitness health fair organised by the WJC Transforming Lives Foundation (WJCTLF), held on the grounds of the West Jamaica Seventh-day Adventists Conference Centre here on Sunday.

The health fair was staged in collaboration with government agencies which provided free consultations and registration for a number of services and benefits.

 

“We exist to transform lives, in essence, we foster foreign mission work, we assist in education for students and anyone who wants to get educational opportunities,” explained Janice McGrowther, the foundation's secretary.

 

She noted that the health fair is just one of the ways in which the foundation is seeking to transform the lives of citizens across western Jamaica.

 

“It is our aim at ensuring that persons are not just transformed for here, but also for eternity,” she stressed.

 

The fair coincided with the conference's Day of Caring, and according to Sonia Clarke-Bowen, a director of the foundation, “it was only fitting to show that we care by giving back to the community on this day.”

 

“We were not only caring for them physically, but we also had a prayer room where individuals were prayed for and counselled with, as well as a Jamaica Moves feature,” said Clarke- Bowen. Read More...
