(CNS): The Cayman Islands may have one of the highest standards of living in the region but children in its schools are still going hungry and under-nourished. Grand Cayman Sunrise Rotary Club made a $5,000 donation recently to Clifton Hunter High School to help finance school meals. The club said in a release that it’s Youth Services Director, Donald Aitken, and his committee recognized a need in the community to help students at the school who were struggling in their studies due to a lack of nutritional meals. The cash will be used for healthy meals that will allow students to receive the nutritional basics they need to encourage improved learning in the classroom.

“Students cannot learn when their stomachs are hungry and as an organization committed to youth, education and literacy the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Sunrise has recently made a donation of CI$5,000 to Clifton Hunter High School in support of school meals,” the club stated in the release.
