30th December 2016 – Bridgetown, Barbados: Digicel has delivered on its promise to grant wishes this Christmas season and a St. John man has been gifted with a new prosthetic leg.

David Shorey, a 49-year-old amputee, received his new prosthesis compliments of the telecommunications and entertainment leader, Digicel, just in time for Christmas season and speaking from his Coach Hill, St. John home he said, “I really want to thank Digicel for coming through like this and especially in such a big way. As you can imagine, without the leg I am really limited where moving around is concerned so words cannot explain how grateful I am.”

Shorey, who receives dialysis treatment three times a week, continued, “This will now make my trips to the David Thompson Polyclinic a lot easier. Without this prosthesis I am unable to be on my feet, so I would like to take this opportunity to again thank Digicel for their kindness.”

Conor Looney, CEO of Digicel Barbados, remarked, “We are always looking out for worthy causes and different ways in which we can improve the lives of those in need. When we learned of Mr Shorey’s situation, we immediately reached out to see how we could assist as part of our plans to give back to those worthy causes across our communities.”

The prosthesis was fabricated by Clinical Prosthetist, Ram Khoday of Island Prosthetics Services located in Belleville, St. Michael.
