Mourant donates for Brac recovery

| 05/03/2009

(CNS): Mourant du Feu & Jeune has made a donation of US$30,000 to the Cayman Islands National RecoveryFund. The funds were raised through a combination of staff pledges from the Cayman Islands office, the law firm’s charitable donations programme and charitable trust money. Hurricane Paloma devastated Cayman Brac during November 2008. The Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund will use the funds donated by Mourant du Feu & Jeune to repair buildings and replace furniture, appliances and equipment in people’s homes, with special emphasis placed on meeting the needs of children and the elderly.

Neal Lomax, Partner and Head of the Cayman Islands office of Mourant du Feu & Jeune, commented, “This is a cause that is particularly close to the hearts of all our staff in the Cayman Islands and they were eager to contribute in any way they could. Grand Cayman was incredibly lucky to have been spared, but we know only too well the damage a hurricane can cause so we are delighted to be able to assist with the recovery programme for Cayman Brac.”

Mourant du Feu & Jeune provides regular community support in the Cayman Islands through its charitable donations programme and charitable trust contributions, including donations to Cayman Hospice Care, the Cayman Islands Humane Society, the Blue Iguana recovery project, Hedge Funds Care, the NCVO (National Council of Voluntary Organisations), The Cayman Islands Red Cross and local youth sports teams.

The Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund is a private independent Trust, established in September 2004, to help people who were affected by Hurricane Ivan. It has since been used to help with the aftermath of Hurricane Paloma.
