Residents of the East End and Long Look communities of Tortola in the BVI can now connect instantaneously with their Seventh District Resource Office thanks to the provision of free internet and phone services at the office.
Marvin Joseph, Resource Office Coordinator explained that among other community services it offers, they facilitate a Food Pantry for vulnerable families who place their orders online where it is compiled then prepared for distribution.
Flow Country Manager, Ravindra Maywahlall said, “Giving back is at the heart of what we do; we believe in the great work that the Resource Office is doing for our communities so the decision to support this initiative was an easy one for us.”
Representative for the Seventh District and Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture, Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley, in thanking Flow for the support explained that the office has also partnered with Dr. Jarecki and the Guana Fund, to supply daily meals for those in need, and the connectivity is used to contact persons who rely on this service.
He further explained, “The Resource Office also coordinates a work programme which involves an online registration process where persons come into the office to register for job placements online training, as well as onsite training.”
This is one of many community initiatives being undertaken by Flow in preparation for its annual Mission Week activities. Every year in November, employees from across the business in the Caribbean, Latin America and Panama volunteer in their local communities to bring to life the company’s vision, philosophy and principles as well as to support the work of the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation.
