Newly launched 4Ys Foundation, the charitable arm of itelbpo, is looking to raise US100,000 to assist Hurricane Dorian victims in The Bahamas.

The foundation has already raised US$60,000 to assist the victims, which include staff members.

Itelbpo Chairman Yoni Epstein made the disclosure about the US$100,000 target Saturday (Sept 14), during the inaugural itelFest in Kingston.

“One hundred and sixty-eight employees made it through with varying degrees of loss from Hurricane Dorian and immediately we established through the foundation… our GoFundMe account and have raised US$20,000. Through the sale of T-shirts, we’ve raised another US$5000,” Epstein added.
