After 14 years, our long-time Director of Eastern Caribbean Programs, Jackie King, is leaving service from World Pediatric Project.
There are few people in the organization, past or present, who have made as profound an impact on WPP as Jackie. With Jackie helping to lead the way, WPP has grown from a handful of teams servicing the children of St. Vincent and the Grenadines to a regional, multi-specialty program spanning 7 countries and delivering services to thousands of children and families each year. She trained and fostered the development of our Eastern Caribbean representatives and island Dove Clubs throughout the region, helping to make WPP a household name on many islands.
During Jackie’s tenure, WPP’s Eastern Caribbean program has delivered more than $220,000,000 EC in medical services to more than 6,500 children across the region.
Jackie’s commitment and connection to families has been so important in healing the children of the Eastern Caribbean. She has helped countless children and families through the complicated and difficult journey to health, providing emotional support and counsel to many, and always being an advocate to whom they could turn. Her contributions are too many to count and too rich to fully put into words.
All of us at World Pediatric Project thank Jackie for her incredible dedication to the children of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Eastern Caribbean and wish her the absolute best in her future endeavors.
