Vodafone Fiji has offered it’s prepaid subscribers free $20 top-up as part of its immediate flood and cyclone relief assistance.
Over 780,000 users on the Vodafone network, including INKK Mobile subscribers are expected to benefit from this offer by Vodafone, totalling over $15 million in free talk time and free SMS.
Subscribers on the Vodafone Network will be able to redeem the free talktime by dialling *212# to claim the free $20 top-up, starting midnight tonight. The offer expires midnight Wednesday.
Vodafone Fiji’s acting Chief Executive Officer, Ronald Prasad says at a time when many Fijians have been cut-off from families due to flooding and road closures, mobile communication is the only way to keep in contact to be assured of their safety and well-being.
Prasad says with many shops and businesses closed due to flooding and lack of accessibility, many mobile users have not been able to top up their phones. He says this free top-up will provide them immediate access to communicate with loved ones using their Vodafone mobiles.
He also says communication is essential to gather information on the needs of people and organize associated logistics to provide relief assistance as soon as possible.
Prasad says for this to happen, those affected need to be able to contact NDMO and other relevant authorities to receive assistance.
He says it is very sad indeed to see the devastation caused by TC Ana, especially flooding across the country on the back of TC Yasa and COVID-19 that continues to affect many Fijians.
Prasad says their thoughts and prayers are with all the families who have been affected by this calamity and they hope communities will come together and stronger to help those in need.
