International offshore law firm, Mourant du Feu & Jeune, has teamed up with the Department of Children & Family Services to sponsor a summer camp programme for local children in need.
Around 23 fostered and adopted children have been enrolled in various camps throughout the Island and Mourant du Feu & Jeune’s sponsorship will provide over 35 weeks of activities for the children in total.
Most of the camps generously offered discounted rates and include the Cayman National Cultural Foundation, which focuses on traditional Caymanian arts, theatre, music and dance; Motions Unlimited, which hosts a gymnastics camp; Smyles, an indoor activity centre; and, a choice of sports, such as inline skating and rock climbing, or arts based themes with Kings Sports Center.
Alicia Dixon, deputy director, department of children & family services, said, ‘The Department of Children & Family Services sincerely appreciates the generous donation of sponsorship to various summer activities for our children in foster care, and the additional sponsorship of several other children in need.’ She continued,
‘The generosity of Mourant du Feu & Jeune has truly made a difference in the lives of these children. Thanks to the partners and staff who gave so generously to make this possible.’
Neal Lomax, head of Mourant du Feu & Jeune’s Cayman office, added, ‘Mourant du Feu & Jeune is delighted to support the local community and the fantastic work of the Department of Children & Family Services. When we discovered that a number of the Island’s children in need could miss out on fun summer activities we gladly stepped in with an offer of sponsorship.’
