Fragomen in Canada Participated in a School Build Project to Support Food For The Poor Canada

Fragomen in Canada recently participated in a school build project for Food For The Poor Canada (FFPC) that works with communities across the Caribbean and Latin America, with a focus on Jamaica and Haiti to support these communities across five areas—food, housing, health, education and livelihood. 

To mark its 10th anniversary, FFPC sent a group of volunteers to build Hampden Infant School in Trelawny, Jamaica. As a part of this group, our Canada-based Partner, Audrea Golding spent three days on site and raised funds for the project. The volunteers were joined by former Canadian High Commissioner in Jamaica, Robert Ready and current Canadian High Commissioner Laura Peters participated in the closing activities.
 
Our office in Canada also supported the FFPC with a charitable donation to raise funds to help underwrite the cost of the building of the Infant School and to relieve overcrowding in the existing Primary School building.
