Campaign Story

PLEASE NOTE: ALL DONATIONS ARE PROCESSED IN UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$)

Curphey Home is an infirmary for indigent Jamaican military veterans and is located in Newport, Manchester, Jamaica.  The home is operated by Jamaica Legion, which is a member of the Royal Commonwealth Ex-services League (RCEL).   Our aim at Jamaica Legion is to ensure that our veterans are adequately provided with a range of full-service assistance, from sustenance and other basic needs to medical, dental and optical care.  Curphey Home, however, only has capacity for 25 destitute veterans; therefore, most of the veterans being cared for by the Jamaica Legion live in less than suitable circumstances outside of the home.  In addition to the veterans we care for, the Legion also provides assistance to impoverish widows of military veterans.

The fundraising target of the JLPA this year is approximately US$100,000. Your generous donations are welcomed and appreciated; no amount is too small. Thank you for your consideration and spiritual support.
