Partners of Good Shepherd Jamaica, Inc. was established to help the poor and infirmed in Jamaica. Its aim is to maximize contributions of money, time, effort, and other resources towards helping those in unfavorable circumstances with social, educational, financial and healthcare opportunities. Through its contributions, POGS’ overarching goal is to improve the physical and mental well-being of those in various disadvantaged communities across Jamaica.
Using all available resources, our aim is to support the marginalized and the disadvantaged among us, not as an obligation, but as a moral imperative to care for the sick and the poor.
Good Shepherd Foundation Medical Centre is one of several programs that will deliver benefits to needy individuals living in Jamaica. This facility is located on the property of the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Construction of this state of the art facility began in 2012. It will house medical, dental, orthopedic, physical rehabilitation units, and a pharmacy. The medical center will provide occasional free health services offered by medical, dental, and eye care professionals and volunteers from overseas. The majority of the patients are the working poor and ninety percent are uninsured.
Hope Hospice is located in Montego Bay and provides care and shelter for persons who are ill, HIV/AIDS infected and have no lodging and in desperate need of medical care. Since its inception, patients with the stigma of HIV/AIDS have had their dignity restored before making the transition to the glory of God.
Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) is dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations in Jamaica. Founded in 1978 as a home for children with disabilities on the outskirts of Kingston, Jamaica, the organization has since expanded and built additional facilities in Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe. The majority of programs are dedicated to the care of children with serious physical and mental disabilities such as Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy. MSC also cares for children affected by HIV/AIDS in Jamaica and Zimbabwe. In Jamaica, there is also a home for displaced teenage mothers and their babies.
“One of the main beneficiaries is the Jacob’s Ladder Community Project in Moneague. Sitting on 100 acres of land, the facility houses about 110 residents but according to Father Leary the vision is to accommodate about 500 adults and to develop the land into a hub for sustainable agricultural projects.” Read more here: https://www.partnersofgoodshepherd.org/news
