“We were delighted to donate our stock to the hard-working essential workers of the BVI and our hope is that the delivery will bring a little bit of comfort to our community and key workers,” said Dawn J. Callwood, Marketing Manager of RTW Group of Companies.

RTW said announcements will be made via social media on future dates and location.

Quote of the Day

That post exemplifies the root of the problem - a historical legacy of centuries of propaganda based on the premise of European racial supremacy. It portrays the white colonial master that is the savior to the ever thankful poor black slave. Thank God, I’m an emancipated African - and I don’t worship at the feet of white gods - the Queen or the Governor, who are simply relics of outmoded colonialism built on the tenets of racist institutions of white supremacy that colonized and enslaved Africans for centuries.

As Bob Marley said, “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,” because sometimes, “shit is just shit!”
