Fund needs contractors and cash

| 19/02/2009

(CNS): The National Recovery Fund has said it is working hard to process over 200 applications it has received from Cayman Brac residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Paloma. Although construction has started on around thirty homes with nine of those completed, Dr. Mark Laskin, Director of the Fund says there is a desperate need for contractors to come forward.

“Whilst our work in Brac is progressing well, we are hampered in our efforts by a lack of available contractors and we urge any qualified contractors to get in contact with our office,” he said. Another obstacle facing the Fund is raising enough money to complete all the recovery work required, estimated at $4 million.

Dr. Laskin said however that he is very grateful for and encouraged by the donations received from the private sector. Most recently, Paul Harris, chairman of International Management Services Ltd. (IMS), donated US $10,000 the fund and said he was pleased to be given the opportunity to make a contribution to assist Brackers in getting their lives back together.
