Jamaican nurses celebrate milestone

INVALUABLE: The Nurses Association of Jamaica

MEMBERS OF the Nurses Association of Jamaica UK, NAJ (UK), gathered for the organisation’s 40th anniversary recently.

The event was held at Croydon Town Hall last month in the presence of the Mayor of Corydon Her Worshipful Councillor Toni Letts, and representatives from the Jamaican High Commission.

NAJ (UK) is a non-profit charitable organisation founded in 1978 by a small group of nurses from the Caribbean island.

The aim of the organisation is to provide support, advice and guidance to the new nurse recruits coming from Jamaica to the United Kingdom.

It is the longest serving Nursing Charitable Caribbean association in the UK. NAJ (UK) has also supported a number of projects including buying medical equipment, monitors, beds and a computer for Victoria Jubilee Maternity Hospital in Kingston, raising money for the Ebenezer Home for The Mentally Challenged in Mandeville and also for the St Andrews High School For Girls.

A spokesperson said: “Our mission is to assist and support individuals and organisations to achieve their potential through access to facilities to enhance their education. The trustees, executive committee and members would like to thank our friends, family and supporters for their continued help in making this a successful Association.”
