The Jamaicans Abroad Helping Jamaicans at Home (JAHJAH) Foundation is a nonprofit organization that has been participating in the upliftment of Jamaica since 2007. The foundation seeks support from the Jamaican Diaspora and friends of Jamaica all around the world. We concentrate our philanthropic efforts in the areas of health, social services and education, through partnerships with Jamaica’s public hospitals, schools and communities.
The JAHJAH Foundation is donates medical supplies and equipment to public hospitals and healthcare centres in Jamaica. We also share information and technology with healthcare professionals in Jamaica’s public hospitals and health centres. Best practice and proficiencies that are taught to our members who are healthcare professionals in the US, Canada, and the UK are shared with healthcare professionals in the public sector in Jamaica. Our ‘Mission for Change’ involves annual projects and short-term projects which are carried out by a team of over 20 volunteers from the United States along with another 20 local support volunteers.
