NCU Students embody “The Volunteer Spirit”

“Volunteer 2-hours a week and benefit 2-people forever.” Such a quote ‘captures one of the most important expressions of faith, hope and love in any community – the volunteer spirit’.

On March 1, 2019, students of the Behavioural Science Club along with members of staff at the Northern Caribbean University’s Eastern Regional Campus, provided special care and gifts to the residents of the St. Thomas Infirmary.

Acting Matron at the infirmary, Antoinette Forrester was presented with donations and the students extended a helping hand carrying out activities such as combing the hair of residents and sharing encouraging words through devotion.

During an interview with the Jamaica Information Service News, Ms. Forrester stated that
“the gesture lifted the spirits of the men and women at the institution”.

Since the inauguration of the club on February 14, 2018, the students have undertaken various outreach programs such as ‘Street Feeding’ in Downtown Kington and a visit to the Pringles Children Home in St. Mary.

The Club, which has the full support of the staff at the Kingston Campus, have numerous future events planned.

Their main drive lies in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works.”

We salute the efforts made by this group as their mission continue to embody the very spirit of Christ.
