ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Members of the Flow team descended upon the [British] Virgin Islands community in a series of relief donations and targeted community service activities leading up to the company’s annual Missions Day on Thursday, November 16, 2017.

Outreach activities included an equipment donation of a multifunctional photocopier and lawnmower to the Bregado Flax Educational Centre Secondary Division; a donation of relief food items to the Adina Donavan Home for the Elderly; repair works to the nursing residence of the North Sound Clinic in Virgin Gorda; and a donation of Flow Back-To- School Bags to the students of the Willard Wheatley Primary School.

One of the company’s flagship projects during the Missions Day community service outreach was assistance with the roof repair to the home of Mr Leon Creque in Virgin Gorda. Head of Commercial, Ravindra Maywahlall said the company was pleased to have been able to start Phase 1 of the roof repairs to Mr Creque’s home which was severely impacted by Hurricane Irma.

He said, “Our mission is Connecting Communities; Transforming Lives and we saw first-hand the extent of the damage done to Mr Creque’s home, so we plan to return with our team on Tuesday, November 21, where we will continue with Phase 2 of the roof repair to further assist with ensuring that he has a more comfortable living space.”

An elated Leon Creque, who is also a renowned musician in the community, shared his account of the devastation wreaked upon his home by Hurricane Irma, and expressed his gratitude to the team for the unexpected and welcomed assistance during the Missions Day activities and beyond.

Mission Day is being celebrated in the VI by Flow for the third consecutive year. The purpose of Mission Day is to celebrate and demonstrate to stakeholders, how employees live the company’s mission – Connecting Communities, Transforming Lives – by engaging in volunteerism work within our communities.

Residents appreciative for donations from Flow

In an interview with a worker at the Adina Donavan Home for the Elderly, who wish to remain anonymous, they told our newsroom that the donation from Flow was very 'thoughtful and kind'.

"The donations showed that businesses in the community really care about the residents or just persons that are in need," said the worker.

"I'm happy to see that a big business such a Flow is taking part in community outreach programmes and I just want to thank them for donating to the elderly home," said Ms Shanice S. Donovan while visiting her mother at the elderly home.

Speaking with Kevon N. McLean, a parent of a student at Willard Wheatley Primary School, he expressed gladness to see that Flow is out into the community.

"I'm a Flow customer and all the talks were about Digicel doing this and doing that, so I'm glad to see that they are out here assisting the residents. I know the children were very happy to receive the back to school goodies," explained Mr McLean.
