11 May Elan Insurance makes donation to the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands
CORAL GABLES, Florida – May 11, 2018, Elan Insurance donated $1,300 to the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands. This donation follows the $9M in medicine and $1M in other supplies Elan delivered to World Hope International after the devastation of Hurricane Maria.
According to John Lyon, CEO & President of World Hope International, “In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, the Elan Insurance Team really stepped up delivering $9M in medicine plus another $1M in generators and other supplies. In a time of our Islands greatest need, Elan was there.”
“As the only locally-owned and operated health insurance company in the Islands, we have a special and enduring commitment to the people here,” said Omar Haedo, President & CEO of ELAN Insurance USVI, Inc. “This donation along with our efforts during Hurricane Maria and beyond are just a few ways we are making good on that commitment.”
In response to the devastating impact of hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) established two funds to collect and distribute monetary donations for the purposes of providing immediate relief and supporting long-term community renewal efforts. Elan is proud to support the CFVI’s efforts.
World Hope International (WHI) is a Christian-relief and development organization that works with vulnerable and exploited communities to alleviate poverty, suffering and worldwide injustices.

Elan is proud to support both these organizations and the people of the Virgin Islands.
