In a first for the industry, the Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) Group has offered free calls from its landline and free calling minutes from its Ufone 4G network to millions of individuals who have been devastated by recent earthquakes in both Turkey and Syria.
Free international calls from Pakistan will be offered by PTCL & Ufone 4G so that people may stay in touch with their loved ones in Turkey and Syria. Customers of Ufone 4G can use the service by dialing *2255#
The natural disaster that has affected both Turkey and Syria has left PTCL Group inconsolable. The entire Group recognizes that these are difficult times for the millions of displaced individuals, including children, women, and the elderly, and feels it is our responsibility to provide assistance to the afflicted neighborhood. We recognize that many people have friends or family in both nations given the extent of the destruction, so we try to use our resources to help them contact their loved ones. The PTCL Group feels deeply responsible for helping those in need on a national level since it takes great pride in being Pakistani.
All of the initiatives are consistent with the Group’s dedication to promoting social well-being during both emergencies and times of peace.
