(CNS Local Life): Ministry of Community Affairs’ Chief Officer Teresa Echenique recently presented a $2,000 cheque to the Circle of Love Women’s Ministry (COL) chairperson Julie Hunter. The donation will offset the cost of staging COL’s May Child Month breakfast, with other activities coordinated across all three islands by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) under the theme: “Be Strong! Be Brave! Be You!”

Next month’s Circle of Love event will feature themed entertainment, speeches, readings and skits. Traditionally, the event is attended by school children, parents, teachers and representatives from several of Grand Cayman’s most prominent child-centred agencies to celebrate children and child welfare, stated a press release.

Echenique said of the ministry’s donation, “As we prepare for another full month of activities in May for Child Month, it is our pleasure to once again partner with the Circle of Love Ministry.

“It is through such community support and collaboration that we are able to recognised, encourage and uplift our children. On behalf of the Ministry of Community Affairs and the Department of Children and Family Services, we extend our gratitude and appreciation to the Circle of Love Ministry and look forward to what is sure to be another amazing breakfast in May.”    

DCFS Director Paulinda Mendoza-Williams was also present at the cheque handover.
