Digicel Raises More Aid for Dominica
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.”
