Moved by the plight of the people who suffered a devastating fire last month on the Cay of Bonacca in the Bay Islands of Honduras, a location which maintains close kinship with the people of the Cayman Islands, Rotary Central Cayman members have raised funds to assist.

At the beginning of October, approximately 2,000 people were impacted by the fire, which destroyed more than 200 homes and buildings. Because of the close historical ties to the people of Bonacca, Cayman immediately reached out to help, providing a Cayman Airways cargo flight that transported much-needed supplies and donations from residents here in Cayman. The Rotary Central donation of $6,000 will further Cayman’s response to the people of Bonacca desperately trying to rebuild lives and homes.

Rotary Central Past President Peter Schmid who coordinated the effort, said: “The terrible fire that destroyed many houses in Bonacca on 2 October 2021 left scores of people in dire straits. Rotary Central Cayman has a long history of helping people in the region in times of need.”

Rotary Central members were on hand to present the donation to assist with the purchase of materials for the rebuilding effort to Spurgeon Miller, the representative to the Mayor of Bonacca.
