Digicel supports PNG fire appeal

In explaining how this works, senior vice president of Digicel PNG, Lorna McPherson, said: “We’ve opened a donation line which the fundraising team asked us to do and we very happy to assist.  You can text ‘yes’ or ‘y’ or send the text back to 16705 and there will be an automatic two kina taken off your handset in your mobile phone.

“That two kina will be donated directly to the fund and to the volunteer fund as well. Digicel is not receiving any payment for doing this.
