The Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists has launched an appeal for contributions to a fund for victims of Hurricane Irma in the Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas.

Members of the public are invited to join in the relief effort by dropping off their financial contributions at the Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, 209 Walkers Road, at any time during business hours, or to the nearest Adventist Church. Donations may also be deposited at the Royal Bank of Canada, to ADRA account number 500-6234.

All church members are encouraged to give generously at their respective churches. Donations will be collected every Saturday commencing immediately and continuing until September 30, 2017.

“The Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists invites the public to share in alleviating the suffering of victims of Hurricane Irma by contributing to the Irma Hurricane Relief Fund,” said Pastor Shion O’Connor, president of the Cayman Islands Conference.  “The needs are great and the suffering is severe; any contribution, irrespective of the size, will be greatly appreciated.”

Funds from the appeal will be channelled and administered through the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) in each country.

ADRA works within communities in more than 130 countries to bring long-term development programmes and immediate emergency relief through an active network of offices. ADRA Cayman Islands works in close collaboration with the Cayman National Hurricane Committee in local hurricane response and has been involved in hurricane relief missions to regional countries.
