Amid the most recent wave of coronavirus-induced countrywide lockdowns, Sean Paul and his wife, Jodi Henriques, set out with a couple of friends to give back to the community in a meaningful way.
Through the Sean Paul Foundation founded by the dancehall artiste, the pair offered assistance to Jamaican families who have been hard hit due to their inability to earn on the no-movement days instituted by the Government to curb the coronavirus spread.
While those who are formally employed have been able to pivot to working from home on the slated no-movement days, others whose earnings depend heavily on the ability to go out each day and hustle have had a difficult time in making ends meet.
Recognising this challenge, the Sean Paul Foundation endeavoured to donate care packages to some 300 families living within the Olympic Gardens, Seivwright Gardens and Waltham Gardens communities.
According to Jodi Henriques, who spoke to the charitable offering on Instagram on Sunday (September 11), “Last week before the lockdown some 300 families from across three communities in Kingston, Olympic Grdens, Seivwright Gardens and Waltham Gardens received packages courtesy of the Sean Paul Foundation.”
She added that the initiative was possible due to help provided by a number of Sean Paul’s friends such as Shaggy, Chris Gayle, Usain Bolt and Food For The Poor.
