Dubbed as “The Poor People Governor,” Bounty Killer has decided that he will make that name become his lifestyle and start his own foundation by donating beds to two hospitals in Kingston, Jamaica.
Dancehall icon Rodney Price aka Bounty Killer decided to act upon his burning desire to give back to the people of his country.
Bounty Killer believes that we should all play our part in making our country better and not to solely rely on the government to get the job done.
Whenever I have something, I will be stretching out my arms in giving because everyone knows that is how we receive our blessings. People always get up and blame the Government but they are not playing their part in society. If we want a better Jamaica, we have to help the Government.
Inspired by the various tear-jerking tales about the need of the Kingston Public Hospital and the Victoria Jubilee Hospital “The Poor People Governor” decided it was time to make his long desired dream a reality.
We had to start the giving from somewhere so I went ahead and got the beds for the hospital. It did cost a bit of money but I got them into the country hassle-free as I got a waiver from the finance ministry. We see Shaggy adopting the Bustamante Hospital and if the children hospital is in such need, you can just imagine what is happening at the adult ones. We have to realize that all of us are going to age, so as it relates to the education, security and health facilities, the public needs to help it if they can.
Senior medical officer at the Kingston Public Hospital, Dr. Natalie Whylie, stated: “The staff and management of the hospital are extremely grateful for the donation. He is like the Shaggy of KPH. Currently, both hospitals are running beyond its full potential and are in dire need of assistance. There is a long list of things that we need but those that come to mind are like patient monitors, ECG machines, stretchers, blood pressure machine, and so on.”
Dr. Whylie further added that “There are a lot of old beds here so we will be getting rid of some of the really old ones and replace them with the new ones that Bounty has donated. We really can’t thank Bounty enough for his contribution and we are just hoping that others will follow suit.”
Yesterday’s donation to the two hospitals is just the first of many donations to come from Bounty Killer.
The deejay reflected on his journey from birth and poverty. The following is what Bounty Killer had to say about his life’s journey:
As a thriving Jamaican who came from nothing to something, I know I had to give back. I also have a special connection with those two hospitals because not only was I born at Jubilee but in the late 80s, when I got shot, KPH was where they took me.
Over the years, everybody knows me ‘The Poor People Governor‘ and it is not just something that I say but it’s a lifestyle that I try to live by. We have to give in order to receive, my mother taught me those good values.
