The Sagicor Group, after reading in the Observer how Williams was ridiculed in his community for returning $100,000 he had found to the man who lost it, rewarded the youngster for his honesty. (PHOTOS: JOSEPH WELLINGTON) KINGSTON, Jamaica – Sagicor Investment Jamaica Limited (SIJL) has officially opened an account for Jabary Williams, the 19-year-old who last week found J$100,000 and returned the money — a move that made him the victim of several attacks from people in his community. The Sagicor Investment Management Account details are as follows:

• Overseas account: SIMA USD # 2200367157

• Local account: SIMA JAD # 2200367149

People making donations can visit any Sagicor Bank or Sagicor Investments location islandwide, and complete a lodgement slip.People sending funds from overseas may either send a draft payable to SIJL a/c Jabary Williams or wire funds to Sagicor.Last week Sagicor Investments President and CEO Rohan Miller told the Sunday Observer that after officials of the financial institution read the story, they decided to reach out to Williams.Reaching out entailed opening an account for Williams at Sagicor Bank. In addition, the youngster and his family have been presented with a weekend at the group’s Jewel Resorts. The company has also committed to sending Williams, who works at a bakery, on a training course to enhance his baking skills. “There are a number of unsung heroes in our society, and a lot of times what we encounter is information and stories about all the bad elements, all the things that go wrong,” said Rejeanne Campbell, marketing manager, Sagicor Bank and Sagicor Investments. “In a time like this when the economy is tough and moral fortitude is not where it needs to be at all times, it is important for us as corporate Jamaica to support those persons, especially young persons, who come forward and show true character in the things that they do. Even if they don’t always meet a reward like this, we want them to know that doing right and doing good is always the best practice,” Campbell added. She said that what Williams did also sent a message to the country that there was still hope. Williams says he is still trying to come to terms with the life-changing experience.
