Busy Signal stood true his word of assisting students from his birth parish of St Ann by hosting a back-to-school treat at Browns Town High School recently.
The annual event, which is in its third year since inception, is spearheaded by the Dancehall superstar’s Busy 2020 Helping Hands Foundation.
Approximately 400 students from various schools across the parish attended the event and were gifted school supplies which included school bags, books, pencils, sharpeners, lunch bags, rulers and colouring books.
“I just give whenever I can and continue to do so. I’m not looking for any satisfaction for myself from none of this. I would love for every child to be satisfied. Not me, it’s jus’ the kids are the future. Yeah, wi do weh wi can do fi di children,” the deejay said.
There were students from Brown’s Town Infant School, Orange Hill Basic School, Lower Buxton All-Age School, Brown’s Town Primary School, Muir House Primary School, and Brown’s Town High School.
In addition to the school supplies, the children were also given complimentary medical check-ups courtesy of the North East Regional Health Authority.
They were also treated to ice cream, cakes, and pastries, juices, and water as well as games and activities in the Kiddies Village.
Adults were not left out of the activities either as they were given free checkups for diabetes, hypertension, HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
