Opposition Leader and former Education Minister, Hon. Andrew Fahie joined members of the community, and students of the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS), in getting his hands dirty during a cleanup exercise at the school.

ESHS was one of the hardest hit schools during Monday's flood.

"Working hand in glove with the community to try to return the ESHS back to as close as normalcy as possible," Hon. Fahie told BVI Platinum News yesterday, August 10.

He added, "I encourage everyone to get involved in the Territory's recovery phase, because together we will achieve more. Together, the BVI will rise again because success is in our DNA as people of the Virgin Islands."

Hon. Fahie's participation in the cleanup quickly made its way to social media, as some residents praised him for being hands on and putting politics aside to join the territory-wide efforts.

Following the flood, the Opposition Leader had indicated that it is clear Government's intervention is needed in order to fix the many infrastructural damage.

At the time, he stated that he intends to do as much lobbying as possible, so that these needs are addressed urgently.

"This is a time when politics must be escorted through the door and a strong spirit of unity be ushered in, so that we can restore normalcy back into our Virgin Islands," the First District Representative stated.

TO Migoman
You just love the ndp and hate Fahie. If he didn't help you will be on his case. Also the two government ministers gave 50 beds and they saying it everywhere and you applauding them. What hypocrisy.

This is nothing new nor a show. Fahie has always been a community man.
