DIGICEL GIVES SPECIAL NEEDS CUSTOMER A BIRTHDAY SURPRISE
Digicel, in keeping with its Caring Connections mandate to provide intervention and assistance to individuals and families with special needs in St Lucia, was happy to join the birthday celebrations of Judy Blondell, a member of the special needs community.
Judy Blondell is a young and vivacious mother who led a very active and rewarding life with her family before tragedy struck. She became a victim of a shooting incident which took place in the city circuit on her way to work. This unforeseen misfortune ultimately changed her life forever.
Being left paralyzed and unable to walk, Judy kept a positive attitude and never gave up. Never ascertaining the reason behind the shooting, Judy vowed not to become a victim of her unfortunate circumstance. Being a natural fighter, she pulled through her ordeal a stronger individual and every year, for the past four years since the incident, has celebrated her survival.
A resident of Babonneau, Blondell was a woman whose independence was always at the forefront of her mind. She loved taking care of herself and specially enjoyed the outdoors for peaceful relaxation and fresh air. To accommodate her, Digicel constructed a strong and sturdy ramp with rails leading from her home to the outdoors.
It has been one year since the ramp was built and Judy is doing great. No longer having the fear of venturing outside, Judy was very excited about celebrating her birthday outdoors with her family. Digicel joined Judy and her family to celebrate her birthday and delivered her a very special gift. Knowing how this young woman defied all odds and kept a positive attitude to life, Digicel decided once again to come to her aid and present her with a brand new 4G capable Blu Life Play handset for her birthday.
Overwhelmed with emotion an elated Judy exclaimed, “I am so blessed and pleased that Digicel is here to help me once again. I love the handset and appreciate it very much. I was desperately in need of a phone for some time now and it warms my heart to know that I no longer have to worry about it as Digicel has come to my rescue.”
The management and staff of Digicel wish Judy a happy birthday and hope she enjoys her new handset which will keep her connected to her friends and family.
