Cash boost for ‘Feed My Lambs’ charity

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Digicel and BTC have thrown their support behind the “Feed My Lambs Ministry”, a Bermuda and Haitian registered charity founded by Bermudian Phillip Rego.

The two companies donated $4,000 to the charity's initiative to establish a dental health clinic for orphans in Haiti.

The funds will be used to transport essential equipment to the clinic and support the team of dentists and hygienists who will be caring for the children and educating them on oral hygiene.

Amber Karaz, the certified Dental Assistant leading the project, approached Digicel and BTC, recognising the company's strong connections to communities in both Bermuda and Haiti.

“I am extremely grateful for the donation that Digicel and BTC have provided to support this project that will make a real difference to the lives of many young children,” said Karaz.

“The blessing of a healthy smile is one many of us take for granted. I am filled with so much peace knowing all the smiles we will be helping.”

CEO of Digicel and BTC, Robin Seale added: “The extraordinary passion that Amber shared with us and the commitment she is making to invest her own time and expertise really inspired us to support this project. We were delighted to be part of such a worthy cause.”

Karaz will be travelling to Haiti in the spring.
