The special project that Be The Change supported in July was "A fun educational field trip for the clients and staff of the Sister Basilia Center, clients who are intellectually and physically disabled.
“This project will allow our clients and staff to interact with others in nature, by experiencing the thrill of weightlessness while zip-lining through the trees. Clients and staff will also have the opportunity to enjoy hydrotherapy in the pool on location.
“We would also like for the clients to part take in an onsite lunch, where they will taste the flavors of the French side of our island," Be The Change said in a press statement on Tuesday.
Be The Change Foundation members visited Sister Basilia Center in order to present the donation.
Be The Change is proud to help support such worthwhile foundations and projects in the community.
