Dancehall artiste Agent Sasco is being lauded by many of his international fans as well as his Jamaican compatriots, for his humanitarian work in the community of Kintyre in St. Andrew where he grew up.
The deejay is on a mission to ensure his community and alma mater, the Hope Valley Experimental School have a consistent water supply, through rainwater harvesting, in light of the perpetual drought facing the Kingston and St. Andrew area.
Agent Sasco recently visited drought-stricken Kintyre along with representatives of Wisynco, a water and beverage bottling company, to distribute the precious liquid to his compatriots. The deejay says he is determined to ensure the drought situation no longer affects children at his old primary school.
“I’m very passionate about rainwater harvesting. It can’t be that we are shocked every year when the Mona Reservoir dips to alarmingly low levels. We NEED TO HARVEST OUR RAINWATER! I was in Kintyre yesterday alongside Wata and ESL (Environmental Solutions Limited) distributing drinking water to members of my community and encouraging RWH,” the artiste posted on Instagram and Facebook recently, beneath a series of photos of himself and the company representatives, taken during the exercise.
“I will be partnering with ESL to install a rainwater harvesting system at the Community Center and Hope Valley Experimental School, which I used to attend. Let’s take a proactive and sustainable approach to this most critical resource. Rainwater harvesting; it’s a ‘No brainer,” Sasco, whose real name is Jeffrey Campbell, said.
Some of the grateful beneficiaries poured out their gratitude to the former Camperdown High School old boy in response.
