NORTH SOUND FOUNDATION MAKES STRIDES IN POST-IRMA RECOVERY
Local Virgin Gorda Nonprofit has Supported Ongoing Efforts for Clean Up, Providing Supplies and Rebuilding the Robinson O’Neal Elementary School.
VIRGIN GORDA (Nov. 21, 2017) - The North Sound Foundation (NSF), a nonprofit created to focus on Virgin Gorda and support and enhance the greater British Virgin Islands community, has made significant strides in its support of the BVI’s post-Irma recovery. Founded by Oil Nut Bay developer David V. Johnson and his wife, Pamela Johnson, the foundation has successfully assisted in various relief and rebuilding efforts of the Virgin Gorda community.
Thanks to the generous donations from Oil Nut Bay homeowners and friends following Irma’s wake, the NSF has so far aided in ongoing cleanup, provided various supplies and has been working closely with the BVI government to give aid to communities most in need. For years, the NSF adopted the Robinson O’Neal Memorial Primary School in the North Sound. NSF has placed computers in all the class rooms, provided supplies to the school, introduced the school to green methods of transportation and provided excursions to Oil Nut Bay, among other activities. Most recently, the decision was taken that NSF will be rebuilding the school, which was heavily damaged during Irma.
”The North Sound Foundation has been an integral part of our community’s recovery and I am so thankful to the generous donors and volunteers who have graciously committed their time and money to the cause”, said David V. Johnson, founder and developer of the Oil Nut Bay resort community in Virgin Gorda. ”The North Sound Foundation was committed to improving the community before Irma and we’ll be here long after Irma. Since Irma, through the NSF, we have pledged or spent over $1,000,000 in the BVI community, and we have been appreciative of the partnership we continue to have with the Government and people of this beautiful part of the world.”
”I wish to express heartfelt gratitude to the North Sound Foundation for their commitment to the rebuilding of the Robinson O’Neal Memorial Primary School”, said Minister for Education and Culture, Honourable Myron V. Walwyn. ”Education remains of vital importance to the development of the Territory and we must all work together to ensure that future generations are not adversely affected by the devastation caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria. We all have a responsibility to do our part toward the sustainable development of the Virgin Islands and companies like Oil Nut Bay are indeed making their contribution to the recovery of our community and we remain grateful.”
The NSF’s ongoing efforts offer assistance to nonprofit cultural, educational, environmental, health and human service organizations throughout the North Sound and Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. Through a series of grants that empower the community, organizations such as the BVI public schools, St. Mary’s Schools, KATS, Special Olympics BVI and the BVI Fishing Clubs have benefited from the North Sound Foundation over the years.
The NSF invites and encourages the public to join in relief efforts in support of Virgin Gorda and the BVI. For more information on how to donate, please visit:http://bit.ly/2C2rIUl
