Recovery Fund can help Sister Islands

| 05/09/2008

(CNS): The people of the Sister Islands who suffered damage as a result of the passage of Hurricane Gustav will be helped by the Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund. The Board of Trustees said it stands ready to help residents on Cayman Brac and Little Cayman adversely affected by the storm.

Huw St.J. Moses indicated that he had been in contact with officials of the Cayman Islands government to determine the assistance needed and the CINRF will work closely with it and other agencies to ensure that those most in need of help get the relief they need as quickly as possible.

The CINRF, which is now a private charity, was formed in September 2004 following Hurricane Ivan to assist those of low income who suffered property loss and who were uninsured. Its objectives permit it to provide help and assistance whenever there is loss suffered as a result of a hurricane or other natural disaster. The CINRF relies on donations to undertake its work.

Residents of the Sister Islands will be provided with information on how to submit requests for assistance and the criteria to be adopted by the Trustees in determining eligibility for assistance in the near future.
