About Us

Bringing Relief Through Togetherness

CLN Foundation is a disaster relief foundation that aids hurricane ravaged Caribbean territories.
The initiative has received assistance from companies such as Downsound Records, FranJam, Hardware & Lumber, H&L Agro, H&L Rapid, KLE Group and the The R Hotel.
The 2017 hurricane season was a very active one with Hurricanes such as Irma, Harvey and Maria leaving many Caribbean islands in devastation.

CLN Foundation was formed as an integrated disaster relief campaign to support the affected islands.

To date, the biggest fundraising effort of the foundation was the Jamathon Celebrity Telethon and Concert held on November 22, 2017, which featured over 15 Dancehall and Reggae artistes lending their talent and financial resources to aid in the relief efforts.

Monies raised from this and other initiatives have been used to donate building supplies, food, water and other much needed items.

“Now, more than ever we have to stand up for our Caribbean brothers and sisters. No one could have imagined that so much could have been lost so quickly. Jamaica is in a position to help in a meaningful way, but we must act now.”

– Joe Bogdonovich
