In 2019 we were able to provide 58 year old Ms. Marcia Stephenson with a prosthetic leg. As a resident of Waterhouse she was exposed to both structural and physical violence. Waterhouse got its name from a
hurricane which caused bad flooding and a lot of sewage water to be spread. Because it is an innercity community, these issues were often neglected by health authorities which had a ripple effect on its residents
causing them many health issues, one of which is diabetes - the disease Ms. Marcia had lost her leg to. Ms. Marcia is the sole caretaker of her grandchildren and she had also lost her daughter to gang violence. We aimed to aid in any way we could - through Odem Foundation along with our generous sponsors we were able to!
In 2020, we were able to continue our mission and provide aid to Mr.
Bunny Dyer - another amputee who resided in St. James. For Christmas
we collected donations so that Mr. Bunny would be able to have a place
to call home. We are happy to announce that we were able to pull
through and complete Mr. Bunny’s home!
In 2021 we co-hosted donation events with the Waterhouse Community Development Benevolent Society. We supported the Waterhouse Community Summer Camp Program for kids by collecting various donations such as books, cash and juice/food supplies. We also were able to provide 6 mothers in the community with groceries as a gift for
In 2021 we also launched the OneChild$1 campaign where we raised
awareness for children living in poverty/abuse in Jamaica.
