About the Fund

The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) partnered with the Council of Voluntary Social Services (CVSS), American Friends of Jamaica (AFJ) and United Way of Jamaica (UWJ) to establish the PSOJ COVID-19 Jamaica Response Fund as a national response to the current spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Jamaica. The Fund is aimed at meeting the needs of citizens and mitigating the threats associated with the pandemic by distributing aid to areas that need it the most.

Aid Allocation & Distribution

Focusing primarily on the gaps in relief which are unable to be filled by government, we hope to distribute aid to the individuals fighting this disease on the frontline and those residing in communities which are most impacted. Therefore, funds will be channeled through two key areas of need – Food security and Health services as well as a miscellaneous area to cover any unforeseen funding needs.

If you represent a business or civil society/nonprofit organizations are willing to take part in our aid efforts, please contact us at psojfund@psoj.org or info@cvssja.org

Thank You to Our Generous Donors

Help us reach our J$250 Million target
