Globe Telecom to Provide Free Call for Sabah Evacuees

Written by | Careers, Philippines, Telecom

globeHere’s a good news for our Kabayan who left their home in Sabah to escape the ongoing armed conflict, Globe telecom just set up a number of Libreng Tawag booths to provide free calls to our Filipino evacuees arriving in Tawi-Tawi and Sulu, so that they can at least talk to their families and love ones and let them know that they’re okay.

Rob I. Nazal, Head of Globe Corporate Social Responsibility said in the statement “Most of our “Kababayans” who are arriving from Sabah in batches don’t know anyone in the area. We want to give them, at least, some moments of comfort by getting them connected with their loved ones, relatives and even friends for free thru “Globe Libreng Tawag.” We want to help in our own little way,”

Libreng Tawag booths can be found in the Red Cross office in the Tawi-Tawi and Sulu, then another one in the Mahardika Institute of Technology in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi. Booths will be available from 6am to 6 pm daily for a week.

More then 500 Filipinos left their home and livelihood in Sabah and more are expected to arrive specially the undocumented OFW to avoid being apprehended by Malaysian Authorities.

It is always sad to hear or read news about people leaving their home because of an ongoing armed conflict and publicity or not, it’s always great for companies like Globe to make the first move in helping those people are in need.
