Team members from the Jamaica Energy Partners (JEP) and the West Kingston Power Partners (WKPP) recently handed over personal care packages to Rosalee D. Gage-Grey, CEO of the Child Development Agency for children at the Walker’s Place of Safety.

The donation follows a deadly fire that claimed the lives of two girls, aged 13 and 16 at Walker's Place of Safety in January.

The 34 wards who escaped the inferno will be housed at three other children’s homes, according to Floyd Green, the Minister of State for Youth.

The children’s home which is located at 17 Lyndhurst Avenue in Kingston was gutted by the blaze.
