Cayman Islands: Food samaritans

Acting on calls from residents in the wake of Paloma, Little Cayman Nurse Mary-Allen Cutts and Conch Club Divers' Anne Walther gathered government relief supplies and donated groceries to distribute food packs.

Although the store at Village Square has plenty of canned goods and bottled water, reduced opening hours and limited banking (no electricity) makes it harder to obtain necessities, explained Nurse Cutts.

However, three ADRA personnel did arrive Tuesday bringing some 787 lbs of food and water for local distribution. They will set-up in the Little Cayman Shelter. And once power is restored and the weather allows the landing of fresh supplies, things should return to normal.
