Delta Petroleum reaches out to fire victims in Virgin Gorda
Delta Petroleum Limited continues to demonstrate its commitment to community enhancement and spirit of compassion by presenting a four burner gas stove along with 3-100 lb Cylinders to fire victim, Ms. Leilani Stevens, daughter of Mrs. Ziska Stevens.
The family who resides in Virgin Gorda was presented with the timely donation at a brief presentation ceremony held at the Pasea Service station.
The Stevens lives were devastated when fire destroyed their home on Thursday, April 21. The Regional General Manager of Delta Petroleum Limited, Bevis Sylvester said that he is very happy that his company was afforded the opportunity of coming on board to help Mrs. Stevens in being able to rebuild their home and lives.
Sylvester explained that his company sought to help in whatever way they could so as to assist in the rebuilding process. He told the younger Stevens that the Delta Petroleum family recognises their loss and have decided to pause today to let them know that Delta Petroleum is a caring company.
“We are a company that cares about the well being of the public and being one of our many customers, we are more determined to lend valuable assistance. This is just a token of how we at Delta Petroleum would like to show our appreciation,” he said.
The RGM reminded Leilani that many of the staff supports their restaurant, Island Pot which he said has been a noteworthy contributor to the holistic development of the community. He further said that it was because of this that Delta Petroleum have ventured towards lending assistance thus aiding in their road to recovery.
“I want to tell you that your road to recovery may be long but do not dwell in the past but I dare you to seize the opportunity because I am confident that God has something greater in store so as to make something out of it,” he said.
The Regional General Manager reiterated his pledge to help the Stevens family to remain strong, while urging others to come forward in lending whatever assistance during these difficulties and challenges as a result of the devastating fire.
Meanwhile, the younger Stevens said that she was extremely thankful for all the assistance they received from Delta Petroleum, while adding that they would remain hopeful that everything would work out.
It is moments like these that make our work in the community so rewarding, says Mr. Sylvester.
