Rotary Sunrise members are forming teams to help clean up after Ivan.
There is a ton of work to do. The Saturday working parties try to tackle jobs that are particularly urgent.
Volunteers are scarce because most have big problems of their own but there are a lot people in the community in much worse conditions and unable to help themselves.
Many homes still have gaping holes in the roof or poor sanitation – sometimes no water, states a Rotary Sunrise press release.
In conditions like this every helper makes a difference. Eventually the battle will be won and Cayman will be bright and beautiful again.
The Cayman Island Rotary Clubs have jointly established an Ivan recovery fund and over $100,000 has already been distributed. This new initiative is ‘hands on’ help where it is most needed.
Rotary Sunrise is the newest Rotary club in Cayman. 62 members, men and women, mostly young professionals from Cayman and 14 other countries , having fun helping others.
