Ocorian donates US$5,000 to Jasmine

Ocorian, previously Estera (Cayman), has donated US$5,000 to Jasmine to help support patient care in the community.

In April, Jasmine was forced to cancel its largest annual fundraiser, The Big Bash, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and appealed to the public to help plug the financial gap.

Jasmine is a non-profit organisation that provides nursing and comfort care, free of charge, to members of the community who are living with a life-limiting or end-of-life illness.

Jasmine employs seven nurses and caregivers and a part-time medical director, who provide care to patients in their home or in Jasmine Villa, their purpose-built four-bed facility.

Alanna Thomas, fundraising and events coordinator at Jasmine, said, “We are enormously grateful to Ocorian for their support. It costs almost $1 million each year to provide the services that so many in our local community are dependent upon. Donations such as these ensure that when we are asked how much our services will cost a family, we can say ‘it’s free’.”
