Law firm helps school and NGOs


20-June-2009

The Faith and Hope Association (Faha), the HIV/Aids Support Organisation (Haso) and Beau Vallon secondary school each received a cheque for $1,000, while the National Council for the Disabled (NCD) got a brand new computer set.

Mossack Fonseca partner and operations manager Christoph Zollinger presented the chairmen of the organisations and the headteacher of the school with their gifts in a ceremony at the Lungos building in Victoria.

Faha chairman Reginald Hoareau said their donation will contribute towards hosting activities on Praslin and La Digue, while NCD chairman Daniel Savy said their new computer will be used for everyday office work and also to give training to disabled children.

Haso chairman Justin Freminot said they will use their cheque to finance their first-ever newsletter, which is expected to be published in August.
And Beau Vallon school head Anne-Marie Elizabeth said they plan to upgrade the school compound and renovate certain classrooms.

All thanked Mr Zollinger for his company’s donation and for responding to their appeal for help.

The Mossack Fonseca Group was founded in October 1998 and is an offshore company with a presence in over 40 places including Seychelles. This is the third such donation it has made here, with others going to the Ministry of Health, St Elizabeth convent and the Rehabilitation Centre.

The company is based in the Oliaji Trade Centre in Victoria and has been operating here for 11 years.
