EY Cayman Ltd. has made a US$10,000 donation to Jasmine, which provides care to people in the Cayman Islands living with long-term or end-stage conditions.

“Jasmine goes above and beyond in providing exceptional care to the many Caymanian residents that require their services, and we’re proud to support an organisation so dedicated to helping others,” Keiran Hutchison, EY Partner and Transaction Advisory Services regional leader, said in a press release.

Jasmine’s care is free of charge to all Caymanian residents. It provides support to people living with debilitating pain, as well as specialist comprehensive hospice care to people living with life-limiting illness. The charity provides support for both patients as well as family members, care-givers and loved ones.

“We’re incredibly thankful for the generous donation from EY as it allows us to continue to provide the much needed medical support to our patients and their families free of charge,” said Felicia McLean, director of operations and nursing. “What many don’t realise is the wide range of services the organisation provides, including hospice, respite and palliative care, which allows the organisation to help even more individuals.”

She added that EY’s donation would be used to advance the training of facility staff.

Both emphasised that Jasmine requires additional financial support as the demand from patients and families continues to grow along with the Cayman Islands community, and they hope that other organisations and individuals will include Jasmine in their giving so this community service can continue to support people in need.
