“After COVID many families were unemployed.  The team and I decided to do food hampers and toys. It was one of the most amazing and emotional experiences for us.   We were thankful for the opportunity.  I am happy to be a part of the Digicel family, so proud of the company I work for.”  This is what Telesales agent, Ria Durity said about the ‘Digi Christmas is D Bess’ staff initiative.  Five (5) Digicel staff teams were shortlisted and received TT$10,000 toward a community project of their choice.
