The Commission is pleased to present a cheque in the amount of one thousand, six hundred and fifteen dollars ($1,615.00) to Ms. Jasmine Watson, who is raising funds for her grandson, Jahdiel Watson. The presentation was made at the Commission’s office on Thursday 04th April 2019.

In a collaborative effort, the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission and its members of staff, pooled together donations, which will financially assist Jahdiel with medical expenses.

The gesture was initiated by one of the Commission’s staff member, who after reading an article in the BVI News, sought permission to get other employees involved and assist in whatever way possible.

The news article highlighted the plight made by Ms. Watson, for monetary assistance for

Jahdiel, who at the tender age of four, was diagnosed in January 2019 with kidney cancer.

The Commission is dedicated to the wellbeing of the community and as such occasionally donates to other organizations, such as the Family Support Network (FSN).

Guy L. Malone, the Chief Executive officer of the Commission believes, that internal fundraising, promotes the art of teaching its staff the joy of giving, which results in tremendous emotional benefits.
