CCCL donates to Soroptimists | 28 September 2020
The Soroptimist International Club of Victoria has received a donation of R100,000 from the Civil Construction Company Ltd (CCCL).
The president of the club, Marie Ah Moye, accepted the cheque from the general manager of the company, Marlon Orr in the presence of past presidents of the club Cecile Hodoul and Eurika Naidoo and the president-elect of the club Myra Labiche.
Mr Orr noted that as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility, CCCL is always looking out for projects and initiatives that touch directly the lives of people. Therefore, the Soroptimist club was identified as an organisation that engages in projects that touch the lives of many in the community through its projects.
On her part, Mrs Ah Moye thanked CCCL for the generous donation, which she said came as a surprise.
“The cheque has been well received by Soroptimist and it will go towards meaningful projects implemented by the club,” confirmed Mrs Ah Moye.
Presently the Soroptimist International Club of Victoria is working on numerous projects involving children, cancer patients, and women inmates.
Discussions are also on the way to provide breakfast to other schools.
The Soroptimist Club, in partnership with other non-governmental organisations, also financed the renovation of the Oncology ward at the Seychelles Hospital and now discussions are underway to provide more support to the unit for the benefit of all cancer patients who receive any treatment or services at the Oncology unit.
The Soroptimist Club is also working with the Enterprise Seychelles Agency (Esa) and the Seychelles Prison Service to develop a sewing and entrepreneurship training for women inmates at the Montagne Posée prison.
The Club, together with the Seychelles Round Table, have pledged to support the President's Village through a refurbishment project as a means of supporting the development of children residing at the Village.
To note the Soroptimist Club was established in April 1994 and to date the club has 23 members.
