May 8, 2007 Apia, SAMOA: The Samoa Paralympics Team trip to the Arafura Games in Darwin Australia from May 12-19 is kindly sponsored by Digicel Samoa. Digicel has contributed $15,000 (SAT) to fund Samoa’s delegation to the games, together with a traveling uniform.
The Arafura Games is the Oceania qualifying games for the International Paralympics Games held in Beijing in 2008.

“The Samoa Paralympics Committee are indeed thankful for the support Digicel has given us, we are a small organisation with a big cause. Our hope is to have Samoa represented at the Arafura Games as it is the qualifiers for Beijing next year, and Digicel have come on board to help us achieve that”, says a very pleased Misi Tuala, President of the Samoa Paralympics Committee.
We wish to extend to the CEO and Management of Digicel our sincere appreciation and gratitude for sponsoring our participation at the Arafura Games. Your invaluable contribution will go a long way in the development of Samoan athletes with special needs.
