POND ISLAND:— TelEm Group donated sim cards and free data packages to visiting clowns from the Clowns Without Borders organization to help them bring wide smiles to the faces of everyone on St. Maarten still trying to recover from the ravages of two terrifying hurricanes several weeks ago.
The clowns will be on St. Maarten for two weeks on a busy schedule of visits to schools, homes for seniors and the physically challenged.
On Friday the visitors will host a one-hour gathering at the Sr. Marie Laurence School in Middle Region where they will be entertaining and feeding residents from that area between 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm.
The visiting clowns are St. Maarten on the invitation of the Behind the Beyond Community Theatre Foundation, whose Director, Albina Matuzko is doubling up as one of the performing clowns.
“We want to thank TelCell for their very kind donation and for supporting what we are trying to do in the St. Maarten Community to help people of all ages forget all the bad things that have happened to them for these terrible hurricanes,” said Albina on behalf of the Foundation and also the visitors.
TelEm Group, Manager, Grisha Marten-Heyliger also thanked the visitors for their kind gesture to the island.
“They are so creative and crazy- for a minute I thought they were customers who just came in late for our Wacky Friday sale,” joked Grisha.
