UNICEF Jamaica Donates Supplies To Childcare Facilities

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Jamaica has donated $2.4 million to the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) for the purchase of sanitation supplies for more than 50 residential and childcare facilities.

Child Protection Specialist at UNICEF Jamaica, Janet Cupidon-Quallo, told JIS News the donation is a critical preventive measure to ensure that the facilities, which are home to approximately 1,700 children, are kept sterile to prevent transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
