Dear Xu Myao Lin,
You, han you how doh Hakka nyin choi Ga-mei-ga chue.
Yes, there are still many Hakka people in Jamaica. A great number of
them in the last 3 years have returned to do business again because of
the improved political situation. Two years ago they built a new "club
house", or CBA Centre. The group that is responsible for this has been
around since the 1920's or before. It is called "The Chinese Benevolent
Association" and is located at 176 Old Hope Road in Kingston.
If your cousin practices at the University hospital, he would have to
pass the CBA Centre on his way. Some of the people she could contact
are: Richard Tenn, Eddie Wong Chew Onn, Sam Wong Chew Onn, and Lascelles
Chin. They all speak both Hakka and English.
Hope this will be useful to your cousin.
