Dancehall artiste Mavado and Project Jiungle-Gym Organizer Marc Ramsay were on hand at the Home today for the treat and handing over of the Jungle Gym.
Over the past two weeks, persons were asked to contribute towards the purchase of a jungle gym for the Maxfield Park Children’s Home in Kingston.
The plea reached the ear of Dancehall artiste Mavado’s manager Julian Jones-Griffith who indicated that they were more than happy to be involved with the project. He said that Mavado decided that he would fund the entire cost of the jungle gym and that he has always been involved in charitable activities.
Mavado also has his charity ‘Connect Jamaica’ which was launched in 2007, aimed at ensuring that all schools have access to the Internet.
A jungle gym is what we would normally call a climber or monkey bars and forms one of the key pieces of equipment for a playground.
Ramsay also teamed with several other volunteers to paint a mural in the nursery at the home as well as donated a new door for the computer lab, sporting equipment amongst other well needed items which the home was in dire need of.
Mavado didn't disappoint either, as he also turned out today at the handing over of the jungle-gym and treat for the children at the home. Many smiles could be seen on the faces of the kids as they were treated with ice cream, cake, fruit juices and other novelties.

Some of the volunteers who were on hand for the treat had their hands full playing and enjoying the company of the kids, who were very happy to have visitors.
Ramsay aims to continue the relationship with the home and is encouraging others to come on board to lend a hand.
