[vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Sol (Barbados) Ltd. (Sol) stands by its commitment to the community in which we operate, especially during these unprecedented times. As such, Sol has partnered with the Barbados Defence Force by donating 11,000 litres of fuel (with a retail value of over BBD $28,000.00) in our continued efforts to fulfil our mandate to be a true friend of the community and to be a good corporate citizen in the environments where we all live, work and play, and this is especially true amidst COVID-19.

The Barbados Defence Force (BDF) has been facilitating the distribution of care packages to vulnerable households as part of the Government’s COVID-19 Relief Programme. Sol has provided fuel to assist in this endeavour.

In response to the donation, Chief of Staff, Colonel Glyne Grannum had this to say,

For many years, Sol Petroleum (Barbados) SRL has been one of the Barbados Defence Force’s (BDF) foremost strategic partners. Loyal to their mission, values and promise in the fuel industry, the Sol Group has continuously contributed to the BDF’s mobility on land and at sea. During our fight against the unseen enemy, COVID-19, Sol understood and demonstrated their ability to be a team player and in the true sense of nationhood, made a considerable donation to augment the BDFs capabilities.  As I continue to lead the Force, I am truly comforted to know that in the face of many unknowns, the BDF has the necessary partners and corporate support to be effective”.

Mr. Roger Barrow, General Manager of Sol Barbados reaffirmed the company’s commitment to the region, “We take our corporate responsibility seriously and are mindful of the vital role that our products and services play in ’Powering Journeys and Energizing Communities’ in which we operate. This is just our way of showing that we care and we will continue to support those organizations helping others when we can.”

Sol, the leading supplier of petroleum-based products and energy solutions in the region has championed various initiatives to provide contributions of over BBD$700,000 regionally towards supporting essential workers and charitable food bank organizations responding to these challenging times. We remain committed to further supporting our community, guided by our social investment pillars, education, sports, environment, and charities.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Supporting our communities: Sol Christmas Village

Thank you to everyone who came out to support our Sol Christmas Village on Saturday Dec 14, 2019. The event saw a variety of games and entertainment for children including, trampolines, slides, bouncy castles, face painting, among others. Children accompanied by their parents were allowed to get a glimpse of Mrs. Claus and her helper, Spider Man, Black Panther & Moana. It was truly amazing.

Sol is an integral member of the South Church Street and wider Cayman community, with which it has grown over the past fifty-seven (57) years. Sol sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience caused by the Jackson Point incident and the displacement of its immediate neighbours.
During the incident, some residents of the South Church Street area were unable to return to their homes due to evacuation orders issued by Police and Fire Services and had to seek alternative lodging. Sol strives to be a good neighbor and support the communities within which it operates. As part of its commitment to the community, Sol confirms that it will compensate residents, on an ex-gratia basis, for direct out of pocket expenses related to alternative accommodation incurred by residents who were not allowed to return to their homes on the evening of July 23rd. Sol is asking that affected residents submit their reimbursement claims to the company’s main office. The claim should include a copy of the invoice detailing the cost of the alternate accommodation for July 23. Residents are also asked to submit a utility bill or other proof of address showing that they reside in the affected area.
