Regarding the 12th January Earthquake in Haiti

The Cayman Islands Government and people are saddened to hear of the devastating earthquake that occurred yesterday in Haiti.

Haiti is of course part of our wider regional community and the damage suffered on this occasion is therefore even more distressing. As a people who have ourselves faced two major natural disasters, we empathise and identify with this situation that confronts our Caribbean neighbours.

We will continue to pray and will assist in any possible way. We ask God's blessing on the country.
