Guardian Life donates 29-seater bus for health care workers at KPH

Guardian Life handed over the bus to government and health officials at Jamaica House on Monday.

Guardian Life handed over the bus to government and health officials at Jamaica House on Monday.

As part of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica's (PSOJ) response initiative to the coronavirus pandemic, Guardian Life Limited handed over a 29-seater, 2020 Toyota Coaster bus to the South East Rural Regional Health Care Authority.

The handover was done on Monday at Jamaica House valued at over $12 million.

The bus will be used by front line health workers at the Kingston Public and Victoria Jubilee hospitals.

“Our health care representatives are on the front line of this fight against COVID-19 and we need to do whatever it takes to ensure that they are safe,” said President of Guardian Life Limited, Eric Hosin.

Amid reports of public health care workers finding it challenging at this time to get public transportation to and from work, Guardian Life Limited rose to the challenge to assist them during this challenging time.

Over the past decades, Guardian Life Limited has had a long history of supporting the Jamaican health sector, especially with proceeds from the Guardian Foundation’s annual ‘Keep It Alive’ 5K Night Run, launched in 2014.

With the survival of the citizens of over 150 countries affected by the pandemic now in the hands of the medical staff, Guardian Life Limited is of the view that the safety of Jamaicans must take priority at this time.
