The Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) Jamaica, is requesting support from the UK Diaspora and friends of Jamaica, to assist with the purchase of urgent medical equipment to support COVID-19 patients.
With the advent of the 3rd-Wave in mid-July 2021, due to the arrival of the Delta variant, Jamaica saw more severe cases demonstrated by the increased hospitalisation. This resulted in hospitals reaching maximum capacity and increased the need for more medical equipment and supplies to treat patients.
The funds raised through The Jarrett Foundation, Jamaica COVID-19 Oxygen Equipment Appeal, supported by Jamaican’s Inspired and The Jamaica Diaspora Council, will help to purchase much-needed oxygen equipment and will assist Jamaica to better manage through this heightened phase of the crisis. It will also help to strengthen the public health system in a more sustainable manner, particularly as there is a new variant, Omicron.
The hospitals need:
2,000 High Flow Nasal Cannula Machines £7,200 each
100 Oxygen Concentrators £1,700 each
