ISLAMABAD : At a time when people across the country are uniting to help countrymen displaced by flood, telecommunications operators have extended their support.

In this regard, Jazz, jointly with JazzCash and Mobilink Microfinance Bank, has pledged Rs1 billion for flood relief efforts, the company said in a statement.

The amount includes provision of emergency supplies and extension of telecom services.

For immediate rollout, Jazz will work with NGOs and the government for distribution of emergency supplies including shelter, food items, and medical supplies, the company claimed.

The relief response will also facilitate Jazz customers to direct their donations via SMS and JazzCash. Meanwhile, Jazz employees will also ‘voluntarily contribute’ to the relief effort.

Jazz CEO Aamir Ibrahim said: “We are committed to ensuring connectivity to aid relief efforts and extend a helping hand to fellow citizens in terms of emergency supplies.”
