This is thanks to a new donation of equipment by Mossack Fonseca, an international law firm based in Panama and with a branch in Seychelles.

The handover ceremony was held recently at the Youth Centre, English River, in the presence of several members.
Christoph Zollinger, a partner in the company, presented the gift to the chairperson of the gold award holders’ association, Nigel Simeon.

The equipment, worth $1,000, includes a grass cutter, two wheelbarrows, gloves and other items needed to clear trails.
Mossack Fonseca allocates a fund of $5,000 every year in its budget for donations aimed at making a difference in the communities.

The company’s first donation was in 1998, consisting of wheelchairs and a set of equipment given to the Ministry of Health.
Children living at St Elizabeth’s Convent have also benefited from the firm’s contributions.

Mr Zollinger was presented with a small trophy with the gold award logo on it as a token of appreciation from the youths.
