Local law firm Ogier & Boxall has joined the ongoing efforts to assist the National Recovery Fund in restoring damaged housing across Grand Cayman.
With a donation of $15,000 to the Fund, the firm helped to ensure that one of its own employees, Marjorie Brown, could have her house restored to suitable living conditions.
The funds were used for electrical repairs and re-fitting the interior of the house, located in Bodden Town.
Ogier & Boxalls’ latest donation marked the second time the firm contributed to the work of the Fund. Earlier, the firm donated monies through a staff contribution scheme.
‘We recognize that restoration of housing continues to be a critical issue in the fallout from the hurricane of 2004 and the National Recovery Fund still needs assistance to help many in the community,’ stated David Sargison, Managing Director of Ogier Fiduciary Services (Cayman) Ltd.
‘It was only fitting that our firm should continue its assistance to the Fund to benefit one of our own employees. We applaud the work of the NRF, which is bringing greater comfort to many, including Ms Brown,’ he added.
Over the past two years, the National Recovery Fund has assisted 850 families with post-hurricane recovery. The Fund, set up in September 2004 to provide relief to persons adversely affected by Hurricane Ivan, relies on donations to carry out its work.
