Denis O’Brien’s Digicel Foundation Donates J$1 Million in PPE to KPH

The Digicel Foundation made a generous donation of personal protective equipment (PPE) to Jamaica’s Kingston Public Hospital (KPH). In a presentation on June 24, 2020, Foundation founder and patron Denis O’Brien symbolically handed over the PPE to aid the hospital in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are delighted to be involved in making this donation and we know that it is going to be put to good use,” said O’Brien, who is also the founder and Chairman of Digicel. “We are so concerned for the health workers here in Jamaica, that they remain safe and healthy doing the work that they do.”

The PPE the hospital received included 2,000 KN95 masks and 1,000 surgical masks, as well as reusable body gowns and face shields. The full bulk of the donation was delivered to KPH later that day.
