Shaggy & Friends charity concert raises $32 million for Bustamante Hospital for Children

Shaggy & Friends charity concert raises $32 million for Bustamante Hospital for Children!
The third installment of the Shaggy & Friends charity concert for the Bustamante Hospital for Children raised $32 million (JMD) for the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St Andrew, Jamaica! The concert, which was held on the Lawns of Jamaica House, featured artists such as Shaggy, Tarrus Riley, Romain Virgo, Tami Chynn, Wayne Marshall, Tifa, Future Fambo, Maxi Priest, Eve, Half Pint, Agent Sasco, Mr Vegas, Gyptian, Cocoa Tea, Beres Hammond and Lauryn Hill. It was the biggest of the three so far.

Shaggy announced the results at a press conference, held at the Bustamante Hospital for Children. The proceeds will furnish the pediatric hospital’s new ICU/cardiac ward in partnership with Chain Of Hope Jamaica, a group of volunteer doctors and nurses who perform surgeries each year on our children with heart problems.

Shaggy says: “I am heartened by the outpouring of support this year by so many Jamaicans and I pledge to continue to support this cause and encourage Jamaicans to do so as well!” Watch a video of the press conference below thanks to the Jamaica Observer, or check the photos on Caribbean Celebs
