Cayman National recently made a
donation to the Sister Islands Community Care Association, a not-for-profit
registered company, whose members primarily reside in Cayman Brac.
SICCA operates a centre that
provides care for elderly residents of the Brac and Little Cayman community who
are no longer able to look after themselves in their own homes.
In November 2008 Hurricane Paloma
extensively damaged the original building so that it could not be used, as most
of the beds and equipment were destroyed.
SICCA has been working toward
re-opening the building and repairs as well, as some necessary alterations were
completed earlier this year. However, the association still needs to raise
funds to acquire beds and room furnishings. Sadie Dilbert, an enthusiastic
member of the Association, has undertaken the task and Cayman National’s
donation will give a massive boost to these efforts. Zanda Scott, Cayman Brac
branch manager said: “I am happy that our organisation can give back to the
Sister Islands community especially to this facility which is of great importance
to the elderly.”
