The CJMAS is a grassroots, non-profit organization based in British Columbia whose mandate is to work with partner groups and NGOs on the island of Jamaica to better the lives of needy individuals through health and education initiatives. The CJMAS is non-political and non-governmental.
In 1992, knowing of the need for better quality healthcare in the countries of the Caribbean, Dr. Ronald I. Wong gathered together a group of Jamaicans and friends of Jamaica in Vancouver, BC. Out of this gathering was founded the Canadian Jamaican Medical Assistance Society whose mission was to provide medical assistance to the people of Jamaica. In 1997, CJMAS extended its help to also provide educational assistance in Jamaica.
Over the years the CJMAS has partnered with various organizations based in both rural and urban communities to make a lasting difference in the lives of Jamaicans. To date the CJMAS has provided over $1.5 million CAD in financial, medical and educational aid. The recipients of this aid include individuals, hospitals, schools, the homeless & rehabilitation centres. With your support we can continue to come alongside organizations in Jamaica to better the lives of those who find themselves amongst the lost and forgotten of this world.
