Raised by 8 people in 9 months
My name is Kay Morris I am a humanitarian giving a “Voice to the Voiceless” through my Non Profit NGO Kay Morris Foundation. I am spearheading a major life-saving project to ship 35 beds to two hospitals in Jamaica. Many of you may be aware through the various news/media reports that hospitals on the Island of Jamaica are experiencing severe bed shortages; a hospital with not enough beds puts the community at risk which results in people dying before they can be seen by a doctor.  In some cases surgeries have had to be cancelled or postponed because of a shortage of beds/medical equipment and the malfunctioning of others.  The situation is nothing short of a crisis and desperately needs our immediate response!!

As part of the solution, I received a donation of 35 hospital beds from Baycrest Hospital in Toronto and thank them for their generous donation. I will be sending them to two hospitals in Western Jamaica (Sav La Mar and Black River Hospital).  I urgently need your help to ship these 35 beds because I simply cannot do it alone.  This is a live-saving initiative and it is my hope that these beds will help to save the lives of children and adults who are becoming victims of the dilapidated health care system in Jamaica.

The poorest people in Jamaica who cannot afford private health care are the most susceptible; they end up laying on benches, chairs, and on floors in the hospital ER departments; some of them end up dying because there are no beds available for them to receive medical treatment. *Recently we heard the news that a little girl who died at the St. Elizabeth hospital.  There is a real sense of urgency to ship the beds so that this hospital can also get immediate access to the beds. 

I am seeking for your financial donation and support to cover the significant shipping costs. Price quoted by a Shipping/Freight Company is $450.00 per bed @ 35 beds = $15,750.00 which includes: Shipping, Customs clearance, and delivery of the beds to the two hospitals.  In addition, new mattresses will have to be purchased for the beds and that will be an additional cost. No donation is too small ever $$ counts!!

***I have been given two months free storage space for the 35 beds (in pic they are stacked in the unit); unfortunately the free storage space will end on August 24th, 2018.  Therefore, it is very imperative that we raise the needed funds ASAP to ship the 35 beds out to Jamaica!   

On behalf of the people in Jamaica and Jamaicans in the Diaspora, thank you in advance for supporting this life saving initiative; we are truly grateful!  No donation is too small!  God bless you!!
