This project was started on behalf of a dear friend I had the pleasure of meeting in my recent trip to Jamaica. We started it in hopes of raising capital for a business endeavor. Herfa is an entrepreneur that lives in Jamaica and has been hit hard by COVID-19 with little work available in the tourism industry at this time. She has a dream to sponsor wellness events and create her own retreat space. She wants to incorporate yoga, massage therapy, and mental health counseling and offer these services to locals and tourists alike.
Mental health has been a personal crusade of hers for many years and like in many other countries it's still takes the back seat to other health concerns. Sadly in 2018 she lost her eldest son to suicide. She would like to help others find positive ways to cope with depression.
Like the rest of the world Jamaica has been affected by covid-19. Not only have there been losses of life but in addition there has been an unbearable financial hardship. We are hoping that these funds will bring some relief by providing some work for a few people, and some hope for others.
