Making the holidays merry
and bright for Jamaican children
who need it the most


The spirit
of giving

One of our favorite ways to spend the holiday season is bringing cheer to our neighbors in need – such as our recent initiative to help spread joy to more than 300 vulnerable and disabled children in western Jamaica. Through our New Fortress Energy Foundation, we donated toys, food packages, and personal care items to state-run facilities including West Haven Children’s Home, Blossom Gardens Childcare Facility, and SOS Children’s Village.

We applaud the New Fortress Energy team for what they are doing for the communities across St. James,” said Sydney Grant, manager of West Haven Children’s Home. “Thanks to their donations, the children here at the home will undoubtedly have a memorable Christmas holiday, as we know they’ll enjoy all the toys and goodies that NFE brought for them. God bless you, New Fortress Energy, for this needed gesture.”

“NFE has reached out to us for the second year, providing toys for our boys and girls during Christmas,” added Hewitt Walker, Director at the SOS Children’s Village. “We greatly appreciate their heart of service towards our children and young people.”

Community leaders also shared their appreciation.

"NFE’s philanthropic activities demonstrate our collective ethos of giving back to these children who are among the most vulnerable in our society,” said Oral Heaven, president of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry. “The smiles on their faces as we offloaded the gifts were heartwarming to see, and we are proud to join NFE in this experience of spending time with these children and extending smiles and hope to them at this special time of year.”

We were also thankful to be able to donate care packages to nearly 200 families on the PATH program in St. James, share gifts with 600 children in the parish through the St. James Municipal Corporate, provide food and personal care packages for an additional 400 families in Clarendon and St. Catherine, and deliver toys for more than 2,000 children in these communities. During the holidays and all year, we’re proud to not simply light up homes, but also lighten hearts as we help fill the world with positive energy.
