Jamaicans Abroad Helping Jamaicans At Home

Together We Can Do This-Yes We Can

My name is Veronica (Neysmith) Comrie. I migrated to Toronto, Canada, in 1966, and to Atlanta, Georgia, in 2001. I left Jamaica, but Jamaica never left me, as I have always considered it home. I visited often so was always in tune to the happenings there. I actually returned home in 1995 and lived in Kingston until 2001.

I have had this idea of wanting to help children in Jamaica for many years. After much deliberation and encouragement from family and friends I incorporated “Jamaicans Abroad Helping Jamaicans At Home” in February 2010.

I was also successful in getting an exemption from Federal Income Tax, under Section 501(c) (3) on March 18, 2010.

I know that many Jamaicans living abroad who are in a position to help, have become disillusioned about helping individually or through organizations. In many cases the help does not get to those it was intended to help. I have had a personal experience with this situation and swore never to send help home.

However, when I go home and see the plight of these children, there is a tug at my heart to follow my dream by giving back. I have been fortunate to have had a reasonably good life. I know the struggles of people living abroad, working in sub-zero weather conditions, driving through snow and on ice to get to work. I promise you that your help will not be taken for granted and your donation will do the job you intend for it to do.

We are judged by how we treat the weakest of us.
