Insurance and risk advisory firm Marsh raised CI$5,000 for the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre(CICC) last month.
Marsh representative Beth Henry explained that the money was raised during the company’s annual Christmas party; where employees raffled various prizes that had been donated.
“We truly enjoy raising funds for the Crisis Centre and giving back to the community,” said Ms Henry. “We are pleased to know that this gift will help improve the daily lives of those who have found themselves in circumstances needing the Crisis Centre’s assistance.”
Executive director Ania Milanowska commended Marsh on the donation:
“It’s heartwarming to see the incredible staff at Marsh have once again remembered us during the holiday season. We are grateful for their generous contribution to the shelter.”
Established in 2003, the Crisis Centre runs as a non-profit organisation and provides refuge and support services for victims of domestic abuse. Ms Milanowska highlighted the numerous programmes run by the charity, including its 24-hour crisis line, counselling, and the newly opened walk-in-centre, Estella’s Place.
“Our programmes continue to change the lives of countless women and children,” said Ms Milanowska. “Without the fantastic support we receive from businesses like Marsh, our efforts to end domestic abuse would not be possible.”
