DIGICEL LENDS ASSISTANCE TO IMPROVING HEALTHCARE BY SUPPORTING BROADWAY SHOW
Digicel has re-affirmed its commitment to supporting healthcare in Barbados with its continued involvement in the annual Broadway to Barbados show.
Being held at the Frank Collymore Hall between March 21st and 29th, the Broadway show is put on each year to raise funds for a cause identified by the Broadway to Barbados Charitable Trust.
As was the case in 2013, proceeds will go towards the Medical Intensive Care Unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which last year benefitted from a donation of Bds$275,000 as a result of the great attendance at the show.
“Healthcare is a very important issue in Barbados, affecting all of us in one way or another. Despite the high level of care which is provided by the QEH, we are cognizant of the fact that this institution is still met with financial challenges on a daily basis, which can negatively impact the care provided to thousands of Barbadians. We therefore see this initiative by the Broadway to Barbados Charitable Trust as very timely and necessary, and we are happy to play our part in ensuring its success.”
“In our 10 years here in Barbados, we have shown our commitment to healthcare and the health of Barbadians, through our support of initiatives and programmes by the Diabetes Association of Barbados, the Barbados Cancer Society, HIV/AIDS Foundation, Hope Foundation, Autism Spectrum Conference, in addition to many other initiatives which focus on health and health awareness.”
Tasker also went on to express his excitement about attending this year’s show:
“I know I speak for everyone who attended last year’s show when I say that the performances were breathtaking and I certainly look forward to another fantastic show this year. I would therefore encourage all persons who have never been to a Broadway show to get their tickets before they are all sold out and have the experience of a lifetime while making a valuable contribution to the Queens Elizabeth Hospital and Barbados’ healthcare service.”
