The Victoria Jubilee Hospital (VJH) received four incubators and medical supplies from the Jamaica United Relief Association (JURA) on Friday, May 18, 2018. The items are valued at over US$15,000. The medical supplies donated includes thermometers, laryngoscope, pumps, gauze and iodine. Dr. Orville Morgan, Senior Medical Officer, VJH said the new incubators will assist the hospital in its quest to reduce the morbidity rate for neonates. JURA was founded in South Florida in 1985 by Joan Seaga-Gonzalez and a group of civic minded Jamaicans, responding to the need for a Caribbean oriented service organization and addressing the needs of the less fortunate as well as new immigrants needing assistance in different areas. The organization's focus is centered on giving back to the community in South Florida and Jamaica.

Ms. Roxy Blissette, Vice President, said JURA is pleased to continue making a positive impact, not only through the provision of life saving equipment,but also helping fellow Jamaicans.
