Donation aids Brac homes

Governor Stuart Jack recently handed over the UK Government donation of US$150,000 to the Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund.

The donation was made in response to the appeal to assist Cayman Brac residents who suffered damage to their homes during Hurricane Paloma.

Governor Jack said: ‘I am very pleased today to be able to contribute this significant donation to the CINRF efforts to help people on Cayman Brac affected by Hurricane Paloma.’

CINRF is currently carrying out damage assessments as well as signing contracts with construction firms and Brac homeowners.

CINRF Executive Director, Dr. Mark Laskin, said: ‘I am extremely grateful for the donation from the UK Government and its recognition of the plight of so many in Cayman Brac.’
