The Life Underwriters Association of Cayman has given $250 to the Cayman Heart Fund.
The donation was received on behalf of the Cayman Heart Fund by Dr. Sook Yin.
President Ms Jewel Ebanks applauded the Cayman Heart Fund for its valiant efforts to educate the public about heart disease during the Heart Fund Symposium held at the Family Life Centre in May 2008.
She also said members of association have a moral obligation to advise insurance clients through sound financial advice and appropriate financial products how best to plan for themselves and their families to alleviate, if not eliminate, the financial burdens that can be caused by such dreaded diseases. LUAC strives to ensure that wealth will increase for our clients in their illness or health, as our objective is to enhance their quality of life, states a press release
‘It is only fitting that we, as professionals, play our role as responsible citizens by contributing to the local community. Each year the association identifies a charitable organization to assist, and last year the recipient was the Kidney Foundation,’ she said. ‘This year’s recipient was chosen after our industry lost one of its own, Mr. Ken Chand, from a heart attack.
Ms Sook Yin thanked the association for its contribution both in terms of the monetary donation and the tremendous support it gave to the success of the recent Heart Fund Symposium. She continued by exhorting LUAC membership to stay involved and remain committed to the welfare of the members of society in general.
