Jahmiel has given back to his hometown community of Bull Bay following the coronavirus outbreak.
The Dancehall artist has donated snacks, non-perishable food, diapers, and other needed supplies to communities in Bull Bay. He made the donation after the area was declared a quarantine zone by Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
According to Jahmiel, it was important for him to give back, especially to the youth of Bull Bay.
“I know what it feels like to not have something and getting a helping hand …, so being that I’m in a better place right now, I wanted to help out. The most challenging thing, for me, since the pandemic is me seeing so many persons around the world sick and me not being able to fix it.”
“I am encouraging others to do the same because unity is strength,” he said. He then added “which means more people in need would benefit from our contributions. Sincerely, it felt great to make others smile,” he told The Gleaner.
Jahmiel says he had several discussions with his team to determine the best way to help members of the community.
“My team and I thought of the things that the youths normally enjoy on a daily basis but would have been unable to attain because the people can’t leave their community or go to the shop. We also thought of things that were quick for the parents to make, especially when so much is on their minds.”
Meanwhile, Jahmiel also offered some encouraging words to the families being affected by the pandemic. “Stay safe, have faith, and let us all go through this together. Let’s be our brothers and sisters’ keepers through this perilous time. Give a helping hand, if you can, to the ones in need, and, in the meantime, we all have to hope and pray for things to get better.”
