Kingston, Jamaica, Friday, October 26, 2012: With thousands of Jamaicans still without electricity following the passage of Hurricane Sandy, Digicel is pleased to continue to set up mobile charging stations in communities across the island. Thousands of persons in over 20 communities in Kingston, St. Andrew and St. Catherine have been able to charge their phones, lamps and other electronic devices to date. In keeping with Digicel’s previous post disaster response, Jamaicans can also charge their devices at various Digicel dealer stores across the island.
Expressing gratitude, storm affected patrons from Allman Town were delighted to see the Digicel mobile charging truck pull in to their community. Community resident Maxine Garrick shared that “me couldn’t sleep without the light, my phone was dead and now thanks to Digicel it fully charge!”
Digicel is committed to monitoring the restoration of power in various areas and will provide charging stations in communities over the weekend. “This has been a real blessing to communities that have been cut off from electricity and seriously affected by the passage of the Hurricane. Digicel is committed to helping our customers stay connected during this difficult period and to continue to provide support in whatever way we can,” said Senior Communications Manager at Digicel Jamaica Shelly-Ann Harris.
