Digicel Foundation helps children with special needs

That is what’s given many parents of children with a disability the impetus to try and try again.

Six-year old Tally Kandia, nine-year-old Manu Saun are perfect outcomes of parents who have persevered to overcome the odds. Both children were diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (secondary to TB Meningitis) at a very young age and were stagnant with very little progress in the early years of their childhood.

This is what has encouraged and inspired the Foundation to continue with the financial support of K 150,000 for the program.
