Pastor and gospel recording artist Donnie McClurkin donated over $625,000 in medical supplies to benefit Jamaica’s public health sector.
Jamaica’s Health Minister Dr. Fenton Ferguson received the donation, which amounts to over $6 million in Jamaican dollars, during a press conference and expressed appreciation on behalf of the government while noting that the supplies will be distributed on a demand basis to hospitals and health centers across Jamaica.
McClurkin, said the act of kindness was made simply because he loves the island and its culture, has been known to make large contributions to humanitarian causes in the past.
In 2010, he decided to donate all funds from his 50th Jubilee Gala Celebration to the Haitian earthquake relief efforts of Feed The Children, World Vision and Operation Compassion.
McClurkin’s donation to Jamaica was made in partnership with his New York-based congregation, Perfecting Faith Church.
