Medical Care


"Mighty in Character means to strive for excellence and goals. It means a lot to me. It helps me to become better. It helps me and my classmates to do well in class. It gives me confidence."

Juliet Carter, Student, Mount Waddy Primary School, Friendship, Jamaica


The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation, partnered with health professionals from the United States & Jamaica successfully carried out our first medical/dental health fair at the Mt. Waddy Primary School in Friendship St. Ann from Monday August 8th through Thursday August 11th 2016.

We served approximately 134 students and 168  adults with services such as:

  • Full physical assessments
  • Urine testing 
  • Blood pressure testing
  • Blood sugar testing
  • Extractions
  • Teeth cleaning
  • Health education
  • Dental education
  • Eye screenings

It is our aim to annually host medical outreach programs such as these in rural parts of Jamaica where children and adults are in dire need of health care.
