Estera staff raise funds for BVI colleagues
Employees of administration services company Estera have raised more than $10,000 to donate to colleagues in its British Virgin Islands (BVI) office following the devastation of hurricanes Maria and Irma.
Staff from Estera’s in offices in different countries, including Bermuda, came together with events such as raffles, dress down days and bake sales to raise the money to help their storm-stricken colleagues rebuild their lives.
In addition to these funds, Estera has provided close to $40,000 for tarpaulin, electrical generators, evacuation costs, daily supplies, showers and washing machines in the office, as well as cash in hand for daily living requirements.
Farah Ballands, chief executive officer of Estera, said “This is a fantastic result and I am very proud of the generous spirit of the Estera global team. Our team in the BVI, and the jurisdiction as a whole, has shown incredible resilience throughout this difficult time.”
Estera’s BVI office resumed normal operating hours for clients on October 5.
