THE SOS Children's Village was recently presented with 80 sheet sets, blankets and school supplies, courtesy of Digicel.

The telecommunications company said that in keeping with its brand promise of giving back to communities, it was joined by brand ambassadors Jermaine Edwards and D J Bambino, in spreading love to the kids at the SOS Children's Village in Stony Hill, St Andrew with the donation.

Digicel said the team also spent some quality time with the children and their caregivers.

Upon receiving a blanket, one delighted eight-year-old exclaimed, "me glad for this because me don't have any blanket on my bed! Plus me love the colour-colour".

Programme director at the SOS Children's Village, Marcia Brown, remarked;

"We are really happy to receive this contribution from Digicel, because, as you know, this is a home that caters to many children. These things are continuously being worn out and we can't always afford to replace them ourselves. So we are really grateful for these kinds of contributions; it means a lot," said Marcia Brown, programme director at the village.

Bambino, who spent some time interacting with the children and giving them a pep talk, said he was 'touched' by the experience. "This was a really good experience because just to see how they react, you know that some of them just need a little attention and it felt great to be able to do that," he said.
