On last Friday, International Day of the Rights of the Child, a donation was made on behalf of the employees of the Cabinet of the Governor of Aruba to Fundacion Ban Uni Man Pa Cria Nos Muchanan, freely translated Let’s Put Our Hands Together to Support Our Children. This foundation provides breakfast at school from three kitchens for more than 630 children who cannot get breakfast from home.
The donated money was originally intended for an event for Cabinet employees, which was canceled this year due to corona. In order to spend the saved money in a valuable way, this one-off donation was chosen. The employees of the Cabinet consider this foundation important because education is a fundamental right of every child, just like good food and drink. Good nutrition is essential for good learning at school. Walter Maduro, who has been with the Cabinet of the Governor in Aruba since 1986, has presented the check on behalf of all employees to Rachelle Roos (Secretary) and John Fun (Chairman) of Fundacion Ban Uni Man Pa Cria Nos Muchanan.
