Jamaica

 

Young Life is partnering with International Orphan Relief for service projects on the northern coast of Jamaica.  IOR seeks to foster on-going relationships between groups (churches, Young Life areas, etc.) in the States and needy orphanages on this often overlooked country of great economic and spiritual need.  Devastating hurricanes in 2004 have created even more need for service groups to come and help with rebuilding efforts.

Jamaica... At A Glance

 

Jamaica is the third-largest island of the Greater Antilles of the West Indies, situated south of Cuba. Its total area is slightly smaller than Connecticut. Kingston, the capital and largest city, is also a large commercial seaport.

Jamaica's terrain is mountainous, except for several lowlands in the southern coastal area. Blue Mountain Peak, the highest point on the island, rises 7,402 feet from the floor of the Blue Mountain Range in the east. The 635-mile irregular coastline creates excellent natural harbors, including Kingston, Saint Ann's Bay, Montego Bay, and Port Maria.
