The Special Olympics has had a presence in Haiti for a very long time. Its hard work and dedication to Haitian individuals with intellectual disabilities to qualify at world-class sporting activity paid off both on and off the field! The Digicel Foundation’s support to the Special Olympics enabled 300 athletes to train and to receive equipment needed for the 2011 qualification meets and the games in Athens, Greece. This summer, six athletes qualified and participated. “I cannot find the words to thank the Digicel which has contributed greatly to this travel" reported Jean Chevalier Sanon, National Director of Special Olympics Committee of Haiti (retrieved, Haiti Libre, 06.23.2011).
