Several members of the RE/MAX Cayman Islands team joined Mr. Mark Laskin, Director of The National Recovery Fund for a photograph outside the home benefiting from the Recovery Fund efforts and the charitable contributions by RE/MAX.

The Recovery Fund was established to provide relief for persons adversely affected by Hurricane Ivan through its housing recovery programme aimed at restoring families to suitable living conditions. ‘Being able to contribute our time and monetarily to the National Recovery Fund is a great way to help truly needy persons recover from Hurricane Ivan as it directs resources where they are needed most. We were all affected by Ivan, and we all went through a recovery process of some kind. Helping those in need is what community service is about, and Hurricane Ivan has emphasized that to us all,’ said Amanda Brookman, RE/MAX sales associate.

The Fund relies solely on donations to carry out its programmes. To date, the Fund has raised nearly US$9 million and has been able to assist with repairs to over 1,000 needy Cayman Islands homes, through combined efforts with NRF, CIDB and IAMCO and other organizations working together for the betterment of the community.

The Fund also has repairs in progress for 146 families and has been able to assist with four destroyed homes owned by elderly Cayman residents by completely rebuilding their homes.

Kim Lund of RE/MAX Cayman Islands stated, ‘The efforts of the National Recovery Fund depend on the support of local businesses to continue their progress within the community. RE/MAX Cayman Islands is proud to support such a worthy cause.’
