Digicel’s Marketing Team brings Christmas to children at Moitaka Settlement in POM

December 19th 2011

 

Port Moresby Christmas came early for the children at the Moitaka Settlement last week Saturday when Team Marketing from Digicel PNG and Santa Clause visited them with a big box of presents.

 

The aim of this visit was to extend the gift and spirit of Christmas to disadvantaged children who could not otherwise enjoy Christmas like other children. It is all about promoting the spirit of giving this Christmas.

 

All departments and regional offices of Digicel around PNG adopts a CLC and contributes their time and knowledge to ensure that as Digicel grows, the community should grow as well and, this was no exception for the Marketing adopted CLC which is situated in the heart of the Moitaka Settlement at Erima in Port Moresby.

 

The Marketing team delivered Digicel branded gift bags and goodies for the kids with the help from Digicel’s very own Santa Clause. It was a fun-filled day as the kids put up several singing items and action songs for their guests from Digicel. The Santa Clause outfit overgrown white beard got the kids smiling and laughing all the way throughout the small Christmas program.

Digicel Foundation is currently continuing its annual Community Learning Centre (CLC) Christmas visits nationwide. The very first for this year commenced at the Mutennio CLC in 9 Mile outside Port Moresby two weeks ago. Other CLCs nationwide have also been visited by Digicel staff and Santa Clause over the last two weeks while some are yet to be visited in the next following weekends.

 

The Digicel Foundation has established 33 Community Learning Centres in disadvantaged communities nationwide.

 

To date the Digicel Foundation has funded 134 community based projects covering 20 provinces in PNG and put K8 million back into marginalized PNG communities which has directly impacted more than 100,000 people. The Digicel Foundation plans to continue the funding of community projects in the area of basic education and health aiming to support communities as they become more self-reliant in the future.
