For the month of March, the men and women of the Caribbean Cement Company came together to donate sanitary napkins to the Her Flow Foundation. Libresse Jamaica supported the Carib Cement initiative with a donation of 120 packages. In total, these packages will get more than 100 girls comfortably through their next period. Here with Dr Weeks(right), founder of Her Flow, are Carib Cement staff members Nurse Ann-Marie Walters (left) who led this initiative, and Khelley Greene, HR business Partner.

As the culture of ‘work from home’ becomes the new norm for the corporate world, and private-sector organisations help to play their part to curtail the spread of COVID-19, financial conglomerate Sagicor Group Jamaica, last Friday, March 27, treated its team members and online social-media followers to its first ‘online retro’ party. With popular disc jockeys Narity and Copper Cyclone at the turntables, the company’s live stream on its Instagram platform @sagicorja had thousands tuned in from all over the world. The online party was also streamed on mixlr.com, and as a good corporate citizen, Sagicor also utilised the platform to raise funds to donate to The Golden Age Home Cluster 8. Listeners and viewers were able to make a contribution to request a special song from the deejays using their MyCash card. Sticking to the social-distancing protocols, a few Sagicor team members stopped by the deejay hub, stationed at Sagicor Bank Dominica Drive, for some ‘live’ action.
