Residents of Douglas Castle, St Ann recently received much needed relief after a two-day donation mission from Henry Fernandez Ministries and the Children Upliftment Restoration Foundation delivered supplies to the flood ravaged community.
Douglas Castle was one of three communities in the parish greatly affected last month when rivers which flow from St. Ann to Clarendon inundated their banks during heavy rainfall resulting in severe flooding and landslides. Residents were marooned, and forced to use rafts to traverse the flooded community. A joint team from The Faith Center, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, led by Jamaican-born Henry Fernandez and the Children Upliftment Restoration Foundation headed by Dr. Velma-May Brown visited the community donating toiletries, canned foods, baby diapers, rice and water to victims of the flood. Both stated entities were also accompanied by members from the New Life Assembly of God Church for the mission.
