Butterfield Supports Haiti Relief

Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited is proud to support Team Cayman for Haiti, a group of Butterfield employees who plan to travel to Haiti in October during Haven’s Build-It Week. Build-it Week is a week-long volunteering trip where volunteers build houses and restore hope in Haiti.

Butterfield’s Senior Executive Vice President, Caribbean, Conor O’Dea has been instrumental in spearheading this initiative. "At Butterfield, we take an active role in encouraging progress, enriching lives and protecting the natural environment through our charitable donations and sponsorship programme," he said. "We are pleased to join forces with Haven to lend our helping hands to the people of Haiti who still so desperately need our help, and I am personally committed to supporting Haven."

Team Cayman for Haiti includes members Kim Wallace-Watler, Russell Sager, Kathryn Walsh, Thomas Elliot, Derrylee Carter, Gonzalo McLaughlin and Taura Ebanks. Butterfield is assisting the team by providing administration facilities and support, as well as paid vacation and a monetary contribution to their fundraising efforts. The team has organised several fundraising events, such as Sports for Kids, iBingo competitions and bake sales, but is seeking additional financial support to help them reach their goals of raising $4,100 each, plus the cost of airfare.

As overhead costs for Haven are covered by the Chairman for the organisation, every cent of the funds raised for Haven goes directly to buying materials for houses, the construction of latrines and showers, promoting hygiene to children through community workers, building community shelters and so much more. If you would like to donate to Haven’s Build-it Week, direct credits can be made to Butterfield account numbers CI$ Account # 02-201-039792 or US$ Account # 01-201-039792.
