Friday, 19th March, 2010 Fiji: Digicel has moved to help with the recovery from the damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Tomas, by sending free credit to prepay customers in the severely affected areas of Vanua Levu, Taveuni and the Lau Group.
The free credit, valued at over F$50,000 will ensure that all Digicel prepaid customers in these areas can keep in touch with loved ones. Customers in these areas will receive $5 free Digicel – Digicel credit.
Digicel has also launched its “Help Fiji” appeal and has urged all Digicel postpay and prepay customers to donate to relief efforts by DISMAC to communities most affected by TC Tomas. Customers may donate by texting “Help Fiji’ to 4343, all proceeds will go towards DISMAC relief efforts. Texts cost $1 VIP for prepay customers and $0.88 VEP for postpay customers.
Digicel Fiji CEO, Matt Davey said, “At this difficult time it is critical that people can communicate with their families and loved ones and, where necessary, with the Emergency Services. This Digicel free credit initiative is aimed at going some way to help alleviate the distress and damage experienced across the Northern and Eastern parts Fiji, over the last weekend.”
“Our thoughts are with our customers and all those affected by TC Tomas; our focus now is to ensure that our network continues to offer the highest standard of mobile service, despite the high winds we experienced this last weekend.”
