Donnette’s mother hopes NAU function will improve

The mother of a special needs child says she’s thankful government officials have finally committed to improving her living situation.

Wednesday afternoon, Community Affairs Minister Osbourne Bodden and Needs Assessment Unit representatives visited Norene Ebanks and her 11-year-old daughter Donnette Thompson, who has cerebral palsy.

After the visit, Mr. Bodden vowed action. Ms. Ebanks told Cayman 27 she hopes the minister will also look to address what she called other failures at the NAU.

“I just want Mr. Osbourne to actually do something with the NAU,” she said. “A lot of people actually depend on the NAU and I’m hoping that they would not get the same treatment that me and Donnette got.”

Mr. Bodden said relocating the family may be the best option to get Donnette the accommodations she needs. He said he will consult with his colleagues in government to come up with a solution.
