The Digicel Trinidad and Tobago Foundation partnered with the Port of Spain City Corporation to update the Nelson Mandela Play and Fitness Zone. Previously, the Foundation contributed over one million dollars to supply the Park with exercise equipment. The organisation contributed another TTD$130,000 for recent refurbishments, which included installing new equipment. Penny Gomez, CEO of the Digicel Foundation, spoke on how she was proud to see the park being used by citizens. Gomez stated, “This is good because now the public can really enjoy the space; they can try out the new pieces of equipment that we’ve installed.”
These contributions from the Digicel Trinidad and Tobago Foundation allow for locals to better enjoy the park. Port of Spain Mayor, Joel Martinez, thanked the foundation for its partnership with the City Corporation stating, “I want to say thank you to the Digicel Foundation for partnering with the Corporation and ensuring that the children and the citizens of Port of Spain have a place where they can come and exercise and enjoy the ambience of the Nelson Mandela Park.” Martinez went on to say that he looks forward to future collaborations with the foundation as it is a great corporate citizen.
