Our Aim/ Mission
We want to change the life opportunities for disabled children in Jamaica and the countries in the area. There has only ever been one Centre created to fulfill this aim, and that is the Sir John Golding Centre in Jamaica.
The main goal of the Sir John Golding Centre is and forever will be to rehabilitate the person’s disability and give them the tools needed to be self-sufficient, after they have completed treatment, they can take their place in society, and be a part of the working-class.
Greetings, To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Faith Russell, and I am The Founder of The Patrick Bennett Foundation.
Recently when I learned that, The Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre would not be able to provide the children of the facility with a Christmas due to the lack of funding. I saw an opportunity for The Patrick Bennett Foundation to help support the Centre by giving back to the disabled children of the community and ensuring that they experience a Merry Christmas.
On Behalf of the Foundation, I’m asking of any sizeable donation. Grants, or any store products are welcomed. The children at the facility range in age from 1- 20 years old. We are requesting any products from Food, Toys, Clothing, School supplies and Toiletry items. I do apologize for the short notice of this request and Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
Founder of The Patrick Bennet Foundation
