One of the trailers brought to the Cayman Islands to provide shelter after Hurricane Ivan was loaded on to a barge this weekend headed for Isle of Pines, Cuba, which was severely impacted by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike over the past month.
The trailer was one of 12 sent on the barge that left Saturday. In addition, the Cuban Relief Fund committee organised the shipment on the barge of 22 containers of food, water, clothing, building materials, toiletries, cleaning supplies, tarps, baby food and toys, shoes, and household items, plus much-needed building supplies such as zinc, plywood, and nails. A six-member delegation from Cayman left Sunday to monitor and assist with the Cayman aid distribution in Cuba. The delegation, which will remain for one week, was led by Committee Chairman Elseta Ebanks and her husband Kenneth.
