LE ANTONIO'S FOUNDATION IS SEEKING TO YOUR DONATION TO A HELP 99-YEAR-OLD WOMAN LIVING IN EXTREEM LONELINESS AND POERTY 

Mercilyne Iona Stephenson is looking forward to joining Jamaica’s list of centenarians. But the frail woman, born May 28, 1918, fears she may not make it because of the dire situation in which she has found herself.

Alone and without much help, Stephenson, who still has sharp eyesight but weakened hearing, lamented her situation.

“You see me here,” she said with a steady, yet quiet voice. “I am an old woman and I am a sick lady. I have seen whole heap of things and God keep me to this point, but look at my surroundings. I am worried now because I am alone. Not even the church business wid me anymore,” she told The Gleaner last week, with a look of dejection on her face.

"I moved here in 1961 and it is here I have been since, but is like I am abandoned. At nights, if a emergency a God alone me have fe call pon," she said.


The run-down house that she calls home is without electricity or running water, and compounding her misery was the constant overflowing of a National Water Commission sewer main almost directly in front of the yard she occupies, that routinely dumps fecal matter on to the premises.


“I am alone most of the time. Every day, it’s just me. I have a few people who come around to help in whatever way they can but it is always just me alone here. Sometimes I want somebody to talk to and it nuh happen,” she said.

“Night and day is only God me can talk to. But I need people too,” Stephenson added.
