ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Leader of the Opposition Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1) and residents of the First District have taken their humanitarian gestures outside of their district by donating food and other items to Family Support Network (FSN).

The donation was done on Saturday, February 3, 2018.

Meanwhile, Hon Fahie took the time out to commend Dr Sylvia M. Simmons, Executive Manager of FSN, Mrs Wendy Burnett Charles, Administrative Manager and volunteers for their hard work.

"We take this time to commend FSN and all volunteers for the outstanding work they continue to do in our territory, supporting families in distress in one form or another. Let us all continue to support their efforts," expressed the Opposition Leader.

FSN is the territory's non-governmental organisation that leads the fight against domestic violence.

In a recent interview with Dr Simmons, she stated that FSN is not a distribution centre but assisted with the distribution of relief items because persons would come seeking supply items.

Dr Simmons also commented that her department would direct persons to the necessary departments that would better help persons with their needs.

Residents commend FSN & First District

"Good job and well done to the group who always help person in need," Alicia S. James told our newsroom.

In an interview with Shane J. Grant, he said, "Since the hurricane, I must say the First District has been supporting the community tremendously and I commend them for their services," while adding that the other districts should follow in their footsteps.

"The other districts are not supporting each other as much as they should," said Mr Grant.

    If he get in office you won't see his face! You could always tell who in the opposition. That's when you see them most!

    While I am so thankful for Mr. Fahie and his leadership, the rebuttal documents to the NDP corruptions should be released
