Digicel gives to fight against diabetes

Posted by admin admin on Apr 21, 2011 4:31:13 PM
Digicel is playing its part in assisting the Diabetes Association of Barbados in its quest to educate Barbadians about diabetes.
The mobile telecommunications company has been working closely with the association over the past few months and recently presented the membership with two Jablotron desktop phones to be used as hotlines.
Digicel's commercial director, Alex Tasker, explained that the company was pleased to work with the DAB as diabetes is one of the most prevalent illnesses on the island.
"We will be assisting the association with its educational programme to ensure that every single Barbadian is aware of diabetes and its related complications. We are extremely passionate about the prevention and management of this disease in Barbados and are aware that through education, we can give this process a boost.
"Over the past few weeks members of the association have been joining us on our radio shows and other events to give the public information on the association and diabetes and now, with the two new Jablotron desktop phones, they have another avenue to get this information out, not only to members of the DAB but to the general public as well," Tasker explained.
Immediate past president of the DAB, John Grace, thanked Digicel, noting: "We are extremely grateful for all the assistance Digicel has offered us over the past few months. It is great when a company is concerned with the health and well being of the citizens of the country it operates in and we quite pleased that Digicel has a keen interest in Diabetes and the effects it is having on Barbadians.
The numbers for the two hot-lines are 836-3737 and 836-2737 and members or the general public can feel free to call for any information or advice.
