Light Jamaica Blue - A UN Tribute to Frontline Workers
Jamaica's UN Day 2021 featured the Light Jamaica Blue Initiative - a special thank-you to frontline workers on the heels of Jamaica’s Heroes Day and Heritage Week – in response to the call from the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, to especially recognize frontline heroes at this time. It also served to increase awareness around UN programmes that have and continue to support recovery from the pandemic. Public and private sector organisations across Jamaica showed their appreciation to Jamaica’s heroes of the pandemic by illuminating the exterior of their buildings in blue light as well as through other opportunities. Light Jamaica Blue recognized the wide range of essential staff, who continue to partner with the people and government to help reduce, avert and recover from the impact of COVID-19.
