Kay Morris is on a life-saving mission to help the sick and poor people in her homeland Jamaica. Her Foundation’s Motto is: “Voice of the Voiceless” and she is again echoing the call for help.
In response to the severe shortage of beds at hospitals across Jamaica, the multi-award-winning Gospel Performing Artiste and Global Humanitarian launched the Beds For Jamaica ( BFJA) project to raise greater awareness and to solicit more financial support in order to acquire beds, mattresses, and other medical equipment to help the financially strapped public hospitals in Jamaica.
Morris launched the project in April 2018 after receiving 35 Hill-Rom Electric beds from Baycrest Hospital, a research and teaching hospital for the elderly in the North York district of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This hospital is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto
The initiative caught the interests of Toronto’s City News, individuals, churches, businesses, and people from around the world. On Sat, Aug 12th KMF held a fundraising concert at Bishop S.A. Morrison’ church, West End Worship Centre, the concert featured some of Toronto’s top Gospel Performing Artistes supporting the cause. Money raised from the concert was used to purchase 35 new mattresses, paid for two months storage, and helped to ship the items to the Sav-La-Mar and Black River Hospitals in Western Jamaica.
This upcoming BFJA Fundraising Dinner has been organized on behalf of Kay Morris Foundation by Dr. Elaine Singleton and Host Pastor Bishop D. W. Thompson of Bethlehem United Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ. The event will be held at the church banquet hall on Friday, November 16, 2018, @ 6 pm at 1 Leswyn Road, North York. Tickets are $30 per person. There will be performances by Kay Morris, Comedian Naggo Morris, and more.
Mr. Lloyd Wilks, Consul General of Jamaica at Toronto, has endorsed the BFJA project. Mr. Lloyd Wilks assumed duties on January 5, 2015. He is a career diplomat with over 25 years of experience in the Jamaican Foreign Service.
Kay Morris states, “The BFJA Project is a life-saving initiative designed to help the poorest people in Jamaica to get proper medical care. I am very elated to see so many people coming on board to help with this initiative.”
Dr. Elaine Brown-Spencer will also be donating a portion of the proceeds from her Christmas play, A Letter To God, to the BFJA Project.
This fundraiser will help to equip the St. Ann’s Bay Hospital with beds, oxygen machine, and an ultrasound machine for Percy Junor Hospital, (Spaldings Hospital) Manchester, Jamaica. “With our intervention, public hospitals in Jamaica will function at the World Health Organization (WHO) standards to save lives,” commented Kay Morris.
“I appeal to Jamaicans in the Diaspora to get involved; we need ALL hands-on deck,” Kay Morris implored.
