(Jamaica Observer) Exactly one year to the day when the very first COVID-19 case was confirmed in Jamaica, Sandals Resorts International has announced its intention to gift 300 health-care workers across the region with complimentary two-night stays at its award-winning, all-inclusive resorts.
The gesture, according to the company’s Executive Chairman Adam Stewart, is in recognition of the selfless efforts of health-care workers who continue to exhibit admirable bravery and make tremendous sacrifices in the face of what is already a year-long fight.
“Our health-care workers have been our heroes throughout this pandemic. This has been an extremely difficult year for everyone, but our heroes on the front lines and our health-care workers in particular have demonstrated a level of perseverance and commitment that is awe-inspiring,” a company release quotes Stewart, who is also executive chairman of the Jamaica Observer.
“This is our way of saying thank you and showing our appreciation for what we know has been a very difficult time. These vacations are well-deserved and we can’t wait to roll out the red carpet and pamper our heroes at our luxury-included resorts,” added Stewart.
