CWS Foundation first to support Anse Royale Children’s Playground
Following its successful launch earlier this year, the Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation has been leading the way in providing community assistance. Having already reached out to the School of the Exceptional Child and to the Disabled of Praslin & La Digue, the Foundation has recently lent its support to the construction of a new children’s playground at Anse Royale. On Wednesday, the 15th of June, Mr. Usman Saadat, CEO of Cable & Wireless was on hand to present a cheque of SR30, 000.00 to Mr. Barry Faure, MNA of Anse Royale, of which the funds will go towards the construction of a new playground for the residents of the district. Speaking on behalf of the Foundation, Mr. Saadat had this to say: "The Cable & Wireless Foundation is delighted to donate towards the construction of the Anse Royale Children’s Playground. The playground itself will go a long way towards unifying the Anse Royale community, in particular the families of this district. Through its Foundation, Cable & Wireless is proud to be the first organisation to come forward to lend a helping hand for such a worthy cause. May the Playground Project be a huge success and, as per the focus of the Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation, inspire hope and positive energy amongst the children of Anse Royale." Working under the slogan "A helping hand for a stronger community", the Foundation also made donations last month to all three orphanages on Mahé. Foyer de Nazareth, President’s Village and St. Elizabeth received items urgently needed ranging from large electronic equipment to storybooks and toys, which will help improve the quality of life of the children living in the these establishments. The Foundation provides support and assistance to specific areas, which are decided upon by Cable & Wireless Seychelles.
