Vodafone Fiji has announced the provision of free talktime credit valued at around $3.5million to all its 700,000 prepay customers to enable them to contact their loved ones and emergency services for any immediate assistance they may need.  The $5.00 free talktime is currently being progressively being loaded on the customer’s mobiles and we expect to top up all phones by later today.

Vodafone Fiji’s CEO, Mr. Pradeep Lal said, “Communication is essential during and in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster so that loved ones and we hope our assistance will help family members to communicate and reassure each other.

We have also provided additional assistance to the NDMO’s Office with the communication needs to ensure they are able to better coordinate their rescue and relief efforts.  Vodafone is constantly reviewing the situation and is looking at other ways it may be able to assist in the coming days.”

Mr Lal added: “We also express our deep condolence to any family who may have lost their loved ones through cyclone Winston. Our heart goes out to those who may have lost their homes and properties.  We pray for your safety and well being and a quick recovery.

The wrath of cyclone Winston has also affected people’s lives and with these free talktime, those in need of assistance are able to contact the appropriate authorities and family members for any emergency assistance.”

Vodafone understands after such a calamity, everyone is anxious to know about the safety of their affected our mobile communication towers and communication links in some parts of the country.

The network restoration team began work from early yesterday morning to restore services as soon as possible.

The company further adds, FEA power shut down has also impacted their services in some parts of the country.

Vodafone request the members of the public to bear with the company as their team works around the clock to restore service back to normal as soon as possible.
