As Digicel Guyana draws near in celebrating its 10th anniversary on February 14, the telephone giant has already started its celebrations by giving back to the people who really matter – its customers.
The company will visit 10 special needs schools and orphanages throughout Guyana in 10 days to deliver some much-needed appliances, school supplies, school shoes, food hampers and other items.
The St John’s Boys Orphanage was the first stop in a series of visits. Head of Marketing Jacqueline James, along with several members of staff, joined the boys and administration on Thursday last as they delivered breakfast, school shoes, school packs, school items, a washing machine and other supplies that were needed by the orphanage.
“We are happy to be here with you as we will soon be celebrating our 10th anniversary, we would like you to know that we are here to support you young people and we will always be here to lend a helping hand,” said James to the small gathering.
After the handing over of the items to Director Sister Julie Matthews, the staff was more than happy to assist the boys in finding their sizes so they could be off to school in their new shoes and new backpacks.
Sister Matthews, along with 14-year-old Stephan, thanked Digicel for their timely donations and encouraged those present to “keep doing good”. So far, the telecommunications company has visited four special needs schools and will be stopping by at six others in the week of its anniversary. The schools that were targeted are Diamond Special Needs School, Linden Resource Unit for the Blind, New Amsterdam Special Needs School and the Gifted Hands Special Needs School.(Guyana Times)
