Philanthropy and purposeful giving, are indeed at the heart of Digicel Cayman’s operations.

Digicel Cayman endeavours to continually give back and invest in the community in order to support positive local impact, endorsed by local charities.

To this end, Digicel recently gifted financial donations to the YMCA of the Cayman Islands and the NCVO Children’s Services, respectively. In addition, Digicel offered in-kind service donations to bridge the communication and digital gap by gifting both institutions a mobile device plus free service for a year for both.

Digicel said it considers it an honour and a privilege to support both charities.

Diane McAuliffe, Digicel Cayman CEO, said, “As part of our responsibility as good corporate citizens of The Cayman Islands, we are delighted to be in a position to serve, and Digicel is committed to making a sustainable impact in the communities we proudly serve and support.

The YMCA of the Cayman Islands said it seeks to help people reach their God-given potential by putting principles into practice in ways that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

CEO Jeff Peterson stated, “On behalf of YMCA Cayman Islands, we thank Digicel for their contribution, which helps us to create a positive impact for our youth.”

Every day their staff and volunteers work to inspire the youth, build character, and strengthen our community.

Paola Robinson remarked, “Our camp children loved the holiday BBQ along with the kayaking, archery, ropes challenge, and sports activities during the festive season, many of them signed up to the camp with the financial assistance programme that the YMCA of the Cayman Islands provides thanks to the generosity of the donors.”

YMCA envision more vibrant and compassionate neighbourhoods where the Y is seen as an essential leader in making Cayman a world-class place to live and raise a family.

Pamela Webster, NCVO CEO, said she was thrilled that the campaign highlighted the need for low-income children supports in the Cayman Islands.

“These are difficult times for struggling families, and every little bit helps,” she said.

NCVO is a registered non-profit organisation dedicated to the care, education, and well-being of children and families in need of support.

Digicel Cayman recently celebrated its 19th anniversary in the Cayman Islands with a customer gifting initiative of $500 daily and 19 phones for the month of March. Follow Digicel Cayman on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and stay up to date, or visit www.digicelcayman.com
