Vodafone UK is waiving all call fees to Ukraine in addition to providing free data roaming to customers in the country.
Ahmed Essam Shelbaya, CEO of Vodafone UK, tweeted:
In addition to the decision to help people keep in touch with their loved ones, Vodafone is making a donation to relevant humanitarian efforts.
“We will also donate, through the Vodafone Foundation, up to €500k from its Humanitarian Fund for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in Czech, Romania, and Hungary in support of refugees coming from Ukraine,” said Essam.
“This will also include a donation to the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, with whom Vodafone has a long standing partnership, to support their activities on the ground.”
It’s great to see companies like Vodafone UK playing their part to ease suffering during this horrific and senseless war. Telecoms hopes to see other telcos around the world follow suit.
Our thoughts go out to everyone in Ukraine.
