Wednesday, November 18th, 2015 – Providenciales – In honour of World Diabetes Day, which took place on November 14th, and in the spirit of goodwill, Digicel donated much needed patient supplies to the TCI Diabetic Association.
The supplies, which consisted of Glucose & Ketone meters, testing stripes and Glucose control solutions, were handed over, on November 16th, to Ms. Angela Williams and Nurse Elaine Clare of the association, who were most appreciative of the gesture by Digicel.
“We, of the Diabetic Association, are truly grateful for the gift of the Glucometers and strips that we received from Digicel. We know that there are diabetics in need of meters, so we will forward the meters to them. Once again, thanks very much for your generosity,” remarked Nurse Elaine Clare, President, TCI Diabetic Association.
Digicel Head of Marketing, Ms. Trina Adams, said: “Digicel is always looking for ways to give back and help those in need in our communities, whether it’s through donation like this one, or through community events, we truly believe that it is important for us to play our part in the TCI. Diabetics is a huge health issue here in the TCI and around the world, the supplies are enough for four patients, and we truly do hope that our small gesture goes a long way in assisting those patients to live the best possible life.”
Digicel also sponsored the recent Wrightfully Fit Charity Walk/Run, which took place on Saturday, November 14th, in support of the Diabetic Association. Several Digicel team members came out to run in full support of the charity.
