Service Club Donates Refrigerators to Immunization Programme

first_imgRelatedService Club Donates Refrigerators to Immunization Programme FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Health’s efforts to provide immunisation services to children in every nook and cranny of the island, has been strengthened with the handing over of two refrigerators by the Kiwanis Club of Constant Spring. The appliances, valued at $100,000, will be placed at the York Town Health Centre in Clarendon and the Bethel Town Health Centre in Westmoreland. Portfolio Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, who addressed the brief handing over ceremony held this on August 15 at his downtown Kingston offices, said that the refrigerators will assist in maintaining the country’s stellar immunisation programme. “Jamaica has been acknowledged among the most successful countries in Latin America and the Caribbean region by the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO). Our programme is cited as a model for other nations,” he said. Through the immunisation programme, the Minister said, Jamaica has been able to eliminate a number of vaccine-preventable diseases and reduce infant and child mortality. He informed that last year, the country achieved 100 per cent coverage for tuberculosis (BCG), 92 per cent for polio, diphtheria, pertussis or whooping cough and tetanus (DPT), hepatitis B and haemophilus influenxa type B (HIB), and 88 per cent coverage for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). The Health Minister noted that the country’s successful immunisation programme is grounded in the creation of a primary health care system, which focuses on prevention services. He thanked the Kiwanis Club of Constant Spring for its donation, stating that “this administration is keen on public/private partnerships as a way to further develop the health sector and acquire the resources needed to assist with the health of our population.” President of the club, Andrew Wong, said the donation, which will assist in improving service delivery, represents the members’ contribution to the country’s ‘Jamaica 50’ celebrations. He said that the club has a record of assisting the social sector particularly in education, and will “continue to serve the children of our homeland and the wider communities at large.” The Kiwanis Club of Constant Spring was established in June 2000.

James Lay’s short-term loan an important one – Lam

first_img Gaston Cortes is ruled out with a calf injury (JMP UK). The tighthead prop arrives from Bay of Plenty, just days after it was announced that his brother, Jordan, had agreed terms to sign for Bristol Rugby ahead of the 2018/19 season. And the head coach says Lay is the perfect fit.“We’re still having issues in the front row,” he said. “Gaston’s calf has been playing up for a few weeks now and there’s still uncertainty as to when his return date is.“Alex Giltrow has had concussion, so this last week we’ve been one injury away from a crisis, in the sense that we had only Sione Faletau and Ollie Dawe. So, I’ve moved quickly to cover that. James Lay has arrived on a two-month loan deal.center_img “James Lay is an international prop from New Zealand, who plays for Samoa. He’s got four caps, played in the Autumn internationals and joins us short-term from Bay of Plenty.“People might think I’m saying the wrong name, but it’s not Jordan Lay, who we’ve signed for next season, it’s his brother, James. He plays on the tighthead side and can cover loosehead.”“We’re getting a quality player in, and someone that Chris Vui, Jack Lam and Tusi Pisi know really well from the Samoan team.“He’ll fit in nicely, because similar to his brother Jordan, he’s got an unbelievable attitude and their careers are really on the up. So, for him to come in here and help us through this period was really important, particularly with the uncertainty around Gaston.”last_img read more

Bears boosted by Piutau injury news

first_imgIt was initially feared that the full back – who sustained a shoulder injury in the pre-season defeat to Connacht – could have been ruled out for 4-6 months.However, following a surgical consult on Saturday, it was confirmed that Piutau would not require surgery.The All Black will work with Rory Murray and the club’s medical team throughout the rehabilitation process to return to full fitness.Head coach Pat Lam said: “We had some really positive news regarding Charles’ shoulder following the surgical consult and it’s great that he won’t be sidelined for too long.“We don’t want to lose somebody of Charles’ ability for any amount of time, but that’s the nature of the sport and it really underlines the importance of having depth and quality in every position.“Charles is a hugely positive person and he’s raring to go with his recovery. He’s desperate to play for Bristol Bears and contribute to the team. He will play a big part for the club this season and will be in the mix, battling for a place in the side, in the not too distant future.”last_img read more

Speaking about his horse Corrigan said:“Loughnavatta Indigo is an 11-year-old Irish Sporthorse, the Wycoff family owns him for me. We have jumped some 4* and 5* classes before and this is our first show back in a long time, just like everybody else.”On his jump-off strategy:“I was kind of thinking of jumping a slow clear, but I watched Samuel [Parot] go. He was quick, but I thought there were one or two areas where I could be quicker without having to run. Since I was last to go, I figured I might as well take a chance.”On his first trip to Traverse City Horse Shows:“It’s been pretty good so far, considering we just won! I have a good feeling about it. There is a sense of quietness about it, and there is a lot of room and countryside, so it’s very nice and relaxing. The footing is amazing and all the horses jump great on it. I’ll be here for next week, too.” 20 June 2020, 08:25 Ireland’s Jonathan Corrigan and Loughnavatta Indigo (ISH) win $36,600 Welcome Stake CSI2* at Traverse City Spring Horse Show Tags:last_img read more
