    Blueingreen, it is your right to donate to any charities or worthwhile causes with which you are comfortable and in which you have confidence. Don't let anyone pressure you into doing anything that makes you uncomfortable.

    Okay. I just hung up the phone with Ms Fay Duncan, the Chief Medical Social Worker at the University Hospital of the West Indies. I went through the operator person to person and lucked out. I had no difficulty getting through right away today.

    Ms Duncan has agreed to contact Ms. Gentiles, the coordinator at the Institute of Jamaica's Juniour Centre that has been set up in cooperation with the St. Andrew Settlement to help the boys who are on the street. Ms Gentiles would know the identity of the boy featured in the article. This is the information about the programme from the church web site:

    St. Andrew Care Centre - is being established as the first point of entry for street boys between ages 8 and 18 into the "Possibility Programme" which is being coordinated out of the Project Management Implementation Unit (PMIU) in the Prime Minister's Office. Social workers and voluntary groups will care for and mentor the boys registered at the Centre.

    They will also diagnose their individual needs, whether these be emotional, psychological, medical, physical, educational or training and refer the boys to organizations already established to address those needs. The Care Centre will be constructed on Church lands adjoining Ambrook Lane in Half Way Tree.

    The project developed out of the Saturday outreach programme, "Little Brothers of St. Andrew" started in 1997. A number of persons representing a wide range of business and community interests and having technical skills relevant to the successful running of the Care Centre have accepted appointment to the Board of Management of the Centre.
    Ms Duncan agreed to work with Miss Gentiles to ensure that the mother gets the required medical care for her Lupus. The Medical Social Work Department also attempts to hook mothers up with skill building opportunities and programmes and yes, blueingreen, rest assured, they address the family planning issues too.

    Okay the contact information for Miss Gentiles is:

    (876) 968-9366
    (876) 906-3335

    I provided Ms Duncan with my personal e-mail address and asked her to pass it on to Miss Gentiles. I will post whatever information I receive here.

    For those of you wanting to support the St. Andrew Settlement here is the information about them:


    Hi T
    The lady got back to me concerning St.Andrews.
    The email is [email protected]<br />
    They have web site at:

    http://standrewch.com

    If you have any problems get back to me. Ms Fay says that the web site has lots of info & dept links (not had time to have a look yet)
    she is a memeber of the church anyway so you can link to her through the site.


    Bless

    Here is the contact information for the church that runs the St. Andrew Settlement and the programme in which Aston is involved. For those wanting to send donations directly, I think that it would be okay to send donations to them c/o Rev. Canon Robert Thompson the to the attention of Miss Gentiles. Specify the date of the article in the Gleaner, the writer and the name of the boy (it probably wouldn't hurt to print off the article and include it):

    St. Andrew Parish Church
    Hagley Park Road
    POB 703
    Half Way Tree
    Kingston 10
    Jamaica
    Telephone: (876) 926-6692, 968-9366
    Fax: (876) 960-8463
    e-mail [email protected]<br />
    Rector: Rev. Canon Robert Thompson

    Tuff Gong will post any information he receives in due course.

    You have a right to be confused, but I thought as much though.

    Awwww... didn't know you cared so much.

    Just who the hell do you think you are giving me advice or making assumptions about my mental state? But since you've taken such loving interest, please pass on the telephone number of YOUR pshychologist.

    Another thing, do me the favour and take the advice of your little quote at the end of your messages...you know the one "never argue with a woman when she's tired....or rested", and let me add "p i s s e d off!!" to that list.

    Last but not least, quit your little SISSY postings aimed at me and get a life!

    Yes but it is not like it was intended at the start to be what it is no. I could have just posted the names and other details she sent me but I have to be careful.

    We still have a few more steps which may or may not work. I am not one to worry about time so long as there is movement forward. I am making a call now to see what I can do.

    Peace!
