Andre Campbell, Class of 2012, University of Technology, Jamaica

LAST UPDATED: 26-11-2018

Dear UTech, Jamaica Alumni & Friends,

Andre Campbell graduated from UTech, Jamaica in 2012, BSc Construction Management, Faculty of the Built Environment, and demonstrated to us and the world, his indomitable spirit. Three years earlier in 2009, while still our student, Andre, as an innocent bystander, was shot twice by a gunman in the neck and the abdomen and became a paraplegic from the waist down.

After these many years of trying to get financial support to achieve his goal of being able to walk again, Andre has recently received significant help. Based on his Go Fund Me updates, we learned that he has decided to pursue the SCI-FIT Rehabilitation Programme. SCI-FIT  (Spinal Cord Injury Functional Integrated Therapy) is based in Sacramento CA, USA. Andre is receiving support from ONE LOVE J.A. and hopes to receive our help as well.

Ready to Donate?

DONATE HERE @ GO FUND ME!

While a student at UTech, Ja Andre’s tragic incident and journey to recovery, as well as returning to us to complete his degree with honours, was well known and supported by our Medical Centre,  our Student Services department and his Faculty. Now that it has been 6 years since graduation and 9 years since that fateful night, and he still hasn’t achieved his goal of walking again, Andre needs the help of all of us in the wider alumni community, as well as our extensive personal and professional network.

ANDRE’S FUNDRAISING GOAL – US$15,000

Amount Raised as @ 26-11-2018 – US$1,970

Balance Outstanding To Date – US$ 13,030

HOW CAN WE HELP?

EVERYONE of us can help Andre by…

Sharing his story (copy the Go Fund Me Link or share this blog post) with AS MANY PEOPLE as we can… by using email, word-of-mouth & social media, and taking the time to add a sentence asking our network to support him. Don’t just share the link without pausing to give a personal touch. More person’s will respond if they receive an endorsement from someone they know. So do add your appeal when you share Andre’s story throughout your network.

AND

SOME of us may be in the financial position to also support through donation.

We gratefully ask you to give what you can and as soon as possible!

With prayers Andre, you will walk again. No amount of money can do it. Its faith and trust in the Almighty that will make it happen. I will be praying for you, Andre. Have faith and a blessed day!
