Sagicor Group Jamaica announced on Friday that it will donate $5 million to the city of Montego Bay to assist in the recovery efforts of the municipal after the recent floods caused extensive damage to some businesses slowing down commercial activity in the town.

President and CEO of Sagicor Group Jamaica, Christopher Zacca in announcing the donation said, “We could never turn a blind eye to this situation.  The people of Montego Bay need help to rebuild and Sagicor will step forward.”

Zacca further emphasized that “Sagicor Bank, Sagicor Life and Sagicor Investments all have branches in Montego Bay and it is many of our clients who have been deeply affected. Helping them to rebuild is going to be a major focus of ours.”

Mayor of Montego Bay Homer Davis was overcome on receiving the news this morning that Sagicor would be offering such assistance. 

"We are so very grateful to Sagicor. The people of Montego Bay are strong but this has affected all of us in a real way.  These funds will go a long way towards clean -up and recovery efforts, particularly in the downtown area which was badly affected."

In response to this disaster which has devastated so many business owners, Zacca noted, "Our team members and clients have been affected as well as the entire community of Montego Bay.  It will take time to rebuild and it’s our responsibility to help during this period."
