Reggae artiste Edge Michael fetes the homeless
MONTEGO BAY, St James - OVER 100 homeless persons at the Open Heart Charitable Mission Care Centre in Montego Bay have benifited from the philanthropic spirit of reggae musician Edge Michael.
Last week, the roots reggae singer fed the homeless persons at the centre which is operated by the Open Heart Charitable Mission in collaboration with the St James Parish Council.
Three weeks ago, the Westmoreland-based singer also fed 200 homeless persons at the Myrie Atkins Shelter in Kingston.
He is encouraging others to be charitable and assist the needy.
" The Kingston leg of the feeding initiative went well and I am pleased that we were able to achieve the same results in Montego Bay. Giving to the less fortunate never gets old, and therefore I want others to follow suit and help organisations like Open Heart Charitable Mission to continue their mission to help others," the performer appealed.
Edge Michael, who continues to donate to the Blossom Gardens Children's Home, is no stranger.
Known for songs such as Killsome City, Mi Nah Talk, Deliah among others, he is the nephew of the iconic reggae star Peter Tosh.
Meanwhile, according to Enamay Waunliss, Administrator at the Open Heart Charitable Mission Care Centre and Night Shelter, the reggae performer's kind gesture was timely.
"We have a great challenge on our hands to feed the homeless on a daily basis, so we were very grateful when he decided to come on board to help us. We hope it is the start of a continuous relationship between the mission and the entertainer. We urge others to come and give what they have. It will help us to help those who are really in need," Waunliss said.
