Digicel Foundation Launched J$42 Million Humanitarian Project: Operation SAFE
Operation SAFE (Sanitising, Advocating, Feeding, and Enabling) is the Digicel Foundation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the island of Jamaica. The Foundation committed to investing J$42 million into the project to better support those in need during the crisis.
As part of Operation SAFE, the Foundation partnered with the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) on May 23, 2020 for a deep-cleaning exercise in downtown Kingston. Additionally, the Foundation distributed hand sanitisers and disinfectant to all of Jamaica’s infirmaries and gave J$500,000 to the Child Protection and Family Services Agency feeding wards.
In thanking her team, as well as the Foundation’s founder and patron Denis O’Brien, Digicel Jamaica Foundation’s chairperson Jean Lowrie-Chin said:
“We are heartened by the gratitude expressed by citizens far and wide for the assistance they have received. We applaud our hard-working Digicel Foundation team members and volunteers from Digicel Jamaica for their energetic participation.”
