Commenting on the partnership, Digicel Group Chairman, Denis O’Brien, said: “At Digicel, our mission is to help create a world where no one gets left behind. That is manifested in our work to connect people across our markets using world-class technology and to connect communities via our philanthropic outreach activities.
“On Saturday 18th April, we will experience a powerful moment of unity as we come together to honour and pay tribute to our front line healthcare workers who put duty ahead of self each and every day. As we celebrate their heroic efforts, One World: Together At Home will also uplift, inform and entertain the at-home audience, who, by staying home, are also playing their vital part in the fight against the pandemic.
"The Digicel family is humbled by the incredible strength of the human spirit on display and honoured to be part of celebrating it and sharing it with the people of the Caribbean, Central America and Asia Pacific regions.”
Chief Executive Officer of Digicel Trinidad and Tobago, Jabbor Kayumov, said he is proud of Digicel's involvement in this initiative.
He said: “On March 22 we started an online concert series on our Facebook Page because we understand and believe in the power of music, especially at a time like this. I am quite proud of Digicel’s support of this great global initiative as we continue to bring the world closer together using technology. We are making the broadcast available for free across all of our platforms so that as many people as possible can enjoy the show at the highest quality. At Digicel we are staying true to being there with you, One World: Together At Home.”
One World: Together At Home is not a telethon, and the broadcast will feature stories from frontline healthcare workers on the COVID response, commitments from philanthropists, governments and corporations to support and equip frontline healthcare workers around the world, with masks, gowns and other vital equipment, and to local charities that provide food, shelter, and healthcare to those that need it most.
