The 3rd Annual Jamaican Health fair in Roses Valley was a huge blessing. We were able to serve 586 residents, who were low income and poor with preventive and medical treatment over the three day period. Your donations made it possible for us to provide:
Blood Pressure Screening & gift of Blood pressure monitor
Dental Examinations and Treatment
Screening for reading glasses & gift of glasses
Health Educations for major illnesses
Thanks to all of you, we claim VICTORY.
The health care system in Jamaica is struggling trying to provide services to the population. There are two systems. The Private Health care system and the government health care system, which is used by the low income and poor. The Government system is stressed. It can take months to get an appointment to see a doctor and then take additional months to get the diagnostic test needed for adequate care. Preventive care is limited to non existent. In the country of Jamaica Coronary Artery Disease, Breast Cancer Stroke, Diabetes, Hypertension, HIV/AIDS, Lung Disease and Influenza & Pneumonia are among the top ten killers of the people.
Unity Fellowship Jamaica Ministries intends to make a difference in the lives of the low income, poor, underrepresented, and underserved people of Jamaica.
We have organized a Health Fair in the historic community of Roses Valley in St. Elizabeth Jamaica to
bring health screening and treatment, as well as, preventive health teaching to the people.
Please take a look at the services that will be offered at the 4th Annual Health Fair.
