Digicel supports Kwakwani team

Digicel donated building materials and assisted in constructing a basketball court fence for the Kwakwani community on February 21 as part of their 7th anniversary celebrations.

The materials, according to a press release from Digicel were donated to the Kwakwani Interest Team after a request was made to build a fence around their basketball court. That release further stated that in addition to providing materials, a team of fifteen Digicel employees travelled to Kwakwani to assist in the building of the fence.
