During a press conference in Grand Bahama yesterday, Family Guardian and Sagicor Financial Corporation announced another in a series of donations related to Hurricane Dorian. The Grand Bahama Children’s home, which has been undergoing construction works since last year, will receive a new state of the art Computer Laboratory and Library dubbed ‘The Learning Den’ donated by Sagicor Financial Corporation and Family Guardian Insurance. The educational space will feature new furniture and computers along with the added bonus of each of the 30 children housed at the home receiving a new tablet.
John Hepburn, Agency Manager, Financial Services in the Family Guardian Freeport Office noted “This donation is a combination of our support for education and social development. In addition, just last week, we further committed to providing two new wheelchairs for two of the residents.”
Since 2013, Family Guardian has partnered with the Grand Bahama Children’s Home during its annual Founders’ Day initiative – a day where all Family Guardian offices close so that management and staff can spend the day with the charitable organization of their choice.
“While there is no Founders’ Day this year due to COVID 19, the children remain on our minds and we cannot wait for them to return to Freeport and their home,” remarked Mr. Hepburn.
“This $30,000 donation is a part of our pledge of $300,000 in Hurricane Dorian donations for The Bahamas”, noted Ravi Rambarran, President & CEO Sagicor Life Inc. “Over the last 9 months, it has been uplifting and heartwarming to see the number of persons and organizations who have benefited from our commitment to support the recovery efforts in The Bahamas and we are humbled and grateful that we were able to assist.”
