Donated Tuna to the nine elderly homes on Mahe, Praslin and La Digue

Local fish company Marlu Seychelles donates 200kg+ tuna to the nine elderly homes on Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. The handing over of fresh tuna loins took place yesterday in a short ceremony at Marlu’s head office in Orion Mall.

Addressing the audience, MARLU’s customer services manager Ms. Yvonne Ernesta said that this gesture is to show gratitude and give due appreciation to the contributions that the elderly people bring to the society and country as a whole. “This donation of 200kg of tuna at the value of SCR 30,000 on the local market is just the first of many more similar gestures we anticipate with the elderly homes,” Ms. Ernesta said.

During her acceptance remarks, the Director General for the Elderly and Disabled Division Mrs. Rosa Morin commended the donors for their kind gesture which will go towards 115 elderly residents. She added that one of the Division’s objectives is to encourage more private organizations to assist the elderly community by having their best interest.
