Ministers group offers help

Government agencies, private sector businesses and volunteer groups have taken on the job of rebuilding Grand Cayman.

The Cayman Ministers’ Association has joined the effort by helping many that are in need throughout the community begin the necessary steps toward making their homes liveable once more.

The Ministers Association is focused on identifying those most in need and providing them help and is working closely with the Department of Children and Family Services to do this.

To date, the association has completed at least two projects-one in West Bay and one in Savannah-for clients who needed roof repairs and sheetrock work completed.

Group members have identified many others who they hope to help before Christmas but acknowledge that such timely help is contingent on the receipt of materials.

‘We have been pooling our resources to get supplies,’ states association chairman Pastor Al Ebanks. He explained that in addition to local resources, the association has received support from the US philanthropic organization, Samaritan’s Purse, which is headed by Franklyn Graham, son of renowned evangelist Billy Graham.

‘Collectively,’ said Pastor Al, ‘we have already received and distributed supplies, and more are en route. The labour is available so when the shipment arrives, we will quickly begin working.’

To make donations to the church effort to rebuild Cayman, contact your local church or Pastor Al Ebanks at the Agape Church, tel. 917-5007.
