Puerto Anton Developers Limited brought cheers to the wards of the state at Jamaica National Children’s Home in Papine, St Andrew on Thursday with a donation of supplies for the Easter season.

The gifts of 100 Easter buns, cheese and cases of water and juices, were presented to Nadine Waugh, Director of Jamaica National Children’s Home, by Rashanne Henry, Maurice McKenzie and Mikhail Watson, who are Director, General Manager and Regional Manager, respectively, of Puerto Anton.

According to Henry, the donations were the company’s collective act of kindness in keeping with the Easter tradition and the unselfishness of Jesus Christ, for whom the season is dedicated.

“The purpose of this donation is to give back to our children. Children are the future of Jamaica, and it is the season of COVID and Easter, which represents the resurrection of Jesus. So giving back is something that is heart-touching for us.

“We could not allow Easter to come and we have not given back to our children. We feel really good to know that we can help someone, help these children in these very hard times, Henry added.

Waugh said the welcomed gesture would help to offset the institution’s food bill, especially since a fire destroyed sections of the home last August.

“Jamaica National Children’s Home has just experienced a terrible fire, and so we have been operating from two compounds, and this caused our budget to have increased exponentially.

“So with this help, it will reduce our food budget, and it will warm the hearts of the children, to remember that corporate Jamaica has remembered us in this season, and we pray that God will continue to bless this company,” Waugh said.
