Dig­i­cel Raises More Aid for Do­minica

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Dig­i­cel, through its themed cam­paign “Dig­i­cel Help­ing Hands” is go­ing one step fur­ther in its ef­forts to con­trib­ute to the re­lief ef­forts for Do­minica af­ter the pas­sage of Trop­i­cal Storm Erika. St. Lu­cians are en­cour­aged to make their do­na­tion to the Do­minica Re­lief Fund by tex­ting the word ‘HELP’ to 5151 to do­nate $2.

Im­me­di­ately af­ter the pass­ing of the storm, Dig­i­cel St. Lu­cia con­tracted a fleet of boats to de­liver food sup­plies, wa­ter, toi­letries, clean­ing agents and cloth­ing to Do­minica. Dig­i­cel St. Lu­cia also ex­tended the boats’ stay there in or­der to fa­cil­i­tate the Do­mini­can Red Cross to reach com­mu­ni­ties which were not ac­ces­si­ble by road.

The staff and man­age­ment Team of Dig­i­cel St Lu­cia have also been ac­tively con­tribut­ing through the do­na­tions of cloth­ing, food sup­plies and toi­letries. Dig­i­cel St. Lu­cia engi­neers have been on the ground as­sist­ing in the restora­tion of the in­fras­truc­tural dam­age done to the com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work. Over in Do­minica, Dig­i­cel pro­vided all pre­paid cus­tomers with $5 free credit to keep con­nected with friends and fam­ily and all post­paid cus­tomers re­ceived a 5% dis­count off their Dig­i­cel bill.

Coun­try Man­ager of Dig­i­cel St. Lu­cia Siob­han James-Alexan­der said, “We stand com­mit­ted to con­tinue to pro­vide tech­ni­cal and hu­man­i­tar­ian sup­port.”
