BEEF ISLAND, VI- Reigning 2017 Miss World Manushi Chhillar of India and her delegation have arrived in the Virgin Islands to participate in recovery efforts following the devastating hurricanes of September 2017.

The 12-member delegation, which also includes 2016 Miss World Stephanie Del Valle of Puerto Rico, Chairwoman of the Miss World Organisation Julia Morley, five continental queens, and other senior management of the Miss World Organisation, touched down at Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island around 11:00 A.M. today, February 25, 2018.

The visit is part of the organisation’s ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ tour and is aimed at raising funds for the rebuilding of the Eslyn Henley Richiez Learning Center, and to add support to the Territory’s post Irma recovery by using the prestigious Miss World brand to promote the VI’s tourism product.

The delegation will be in the Territory from February 25 to March 1, 2018.

This is the world renowned body’s first visit to the Eastern Caribbean, making it a historic feat for the VI.

The main purpose of the visit is to join Miss World BVI 2017-2018 Helena A. Hewlett in her ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ (BWAP) philanthropic quest of re-building the territory’s lone institution of the differently abled, the Eslyn Henley Richiez School, which was totally demolished by Hurricane Irma on September 6, 2017.

The delegation is scheduled to be at The Moorings Conference Room for a meet and greet session from 12:30 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. and will then attend the Miss World Charity Dinner and Philanthropic Award Ceremony at The Moorings from 6:00 P.M. as part of today's itinerary.

    I was at the midday reception and only know understand the magnitude of this project. Beautiful ladies like these are coming to the BVI to help us with our recovery efforts. They came all the way from India, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and more. Please let us show them a sounding BVI Welcome and lets go to the Moorings tonight to support what they want to do - raising funds for us. Kudos to our very own Helena Hewlett, Damian Grange and the entire committee. I am very impressed
