Jamaican health Minister Horace Dalley is hailing the Diaspora for supporting the public health sector.
Speaking in response to this past weekend’s successful Shaggy and Friends concert fundraiser, where artistes among the diaspora such as Sean Kingston and Omi returned to perform, Minister Dalley says the community’s contribution made “tremendous difference to the quality of service hospitals deliver.”
He said that in every public-health facility in Jamaica, the support from the diaspora and corporate Jamaica, and ordinary individuals and churches, has made a tremendous difference to the quality of service hospitals deliver.
Shaggy, an internationally acclaimed artiste, led a band of entertainers that took over the lawns of Jamaica House, Kingston on Saturday night for the 2016 instalment of the Shaggy & Friends benefit concert.
The proceeds from the concert’s 5th staging, organised by the Shaggy Make A Difference Foundation, will go towards completing the first diagnostic Catheterisation Laboratory at the Bustamante Hospital for Children.
