Members of the Digicel team show how big their heart was with a donation of $100,000 to the Heart Foundation of Jamaica. The foundation is planning to stage its annual fundraiser, Simply Red, on September 30, and visited the Digicel headquarters last Thursday to host a lunch and learn session about heart health.

The enrichment cart was presented to the Kellits Primary School in Clarendon this month by the Digicel Foundation, as a gift from Nikuma Fuller, who won, as her second-place prize in Digicel’s Live, Love, Learn Competition, the opportunity to donate a literacy-enrichment cart to a school of her choice. The literacy-enrichment cart is outfitted with literacy and numeracy materials to aid students between grades one and three in reading, writing, and mathematics.
