BVI update - January 2018

[Dynamic date]

25 January 2018

Mourant Ozannes is proud to be a part of the Alliance of BVI Professional Services Businesses. The Alliance is committed to doing as much as we are able to rebuild the BVI following the passage of Hurricane Irma on 6 September 2017. Our priority is the welfare of the Islands and the people who call the BVI their home.

The Alliance has made a joint donation of USD100,000 to support humanitarian relief work in the BVI. USD50,000 has gone to Adopt a Roof and USD50,000 to the BVI Foundation. The funds will be used to support the ongoing humanitarian relief effort to rebuild the BVI and restore the Islands to their former state.

Our BVI office is now temporarily located at c/o JTC (BVI) Limited, 80 Main Street, PO BOX 4857, Road Town, Tortola. Visit our website for more information
