A CARING Kerry nurse is embarking on a mission of mercy to treat and care for abandoned children in Kingston, Jamaica.

Cara Buckley, who works in the Bon Secours Hospital in Tralee, will embark on her journey on October 20 to work with children living with disabilities and HIV/AIDS as well as young girls who have been subjected to horrific crisis pregnancies.

She will volunteer with the Mustard Seed Ireland charity and she said she is delighted to be in a position to help those most in need of help and to fulfill a goal to work in one of poorest places in the world.

“My goal is to bring them hope, to inspire them to dream big and to not let their past define their future. Through education and support we can make their futures brighter,” said Cara, from Castlegregory.

“As a nurse, a qualified professional chef and a mother, I feel the time is right for me to utilise my life skills and help in any way I can.

“I have been blessed in my life with two healthy and happy children and if I can make one child smile, laugh and feel safe in Jamaica then that would just make my day,” Cara said.

She is also hoping that her trip to Jamaica will inspire her on her next mission which she hopes will involve a role where she can motivate, educate and bring about fairness in a troubled world.

Cara has issued her heartfelt gratitude to those that are supporting her on her mission and to the Bon Secours in Tralee for the generous donation to the charity.
