Asafa Powell to donate $500,000 to Kingston Public Hospital today

Today at a special function at the Kingston Public Hospital sprinter Asafa Powell will be handing over a cheque of $500,000 to the hospital.

The donation will be made through the Asafa Powell Foundation.

The donation is from the #SpreadABed4KPH fundraising campaign that was launched in 2014.

Powell explained that he launched the crowd funding initiative after visiting someone close to him at the hospital.

“Someone very close to me fell victim to violence recently and had to be taken there. The doctors and nurses provided the best possible care, but they work under some really tough conditions. I couldn’t believe my eyes,” he had said in 2014.
