In times of hurricane destruction and devastation like the aftermath of Category 5 Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, we must as a global community rally and support all who are affected by this tragic event … And we are.

We are a team. A team in our love and generous giving. The outpouring of Cayman kindness and financial and spiritual support has been inspiring. In humanity we are one. One hurts, all hurt.

We are one in faith and fortitude. Walks are being organised on island, church congregations are collecting funds, and proceeds from upcoming events, such as eShore’s ARMOUR Expo cybersecurity event on 4 Oct., originally to be held in the Bahamas, are gladly being donated.

But always we wish we could do more, and we can. If you would like to contribute to the donation process, you can donate today to the Red Cross Hurricane Dorian Bahamas Appeal at Butterfield Bank Account #1360350540060.

No amount is too small. Together, as a team, we can do incredible things, for when nothing is certain, anything is possible!
