SLT-MOBITEL partnered with the Maduru Oya Army Training School and Trincomalee Divisional Secretariat in an initiative recently, to distribute dry ration packs to communities affected due to Covid-19 restrictions in the Polonnaruwa and Trincomalee areas.
Dry rations packs worth Rs 2,500 each containing essential items were provided to 450 families, who have been unable to provide for their daily needs during these challenging times.
Understanding many hardships faced by the nation due to the pandemic, SLT-MOBITEL has been continuously supporting communities through a host of key initiatives; including, supporting frontline staff, donation of medical equipment, Personal Protective Equipment, connectivity solutions for quarantine centers and other essential items and assisting public and private institutions in ensuring uninterrupted connectivity.
In addition, SLT-MOBITEL introduced a meritorious initiative themed ‘Daana Paaramitha’ in lieu of Vesak to help communities that were affected due to COVID 19. Both Pre-Paid and Post-Paid customers can simply donate via SMS by simply typing ‘YES’ and sending it to 255. For every SMS Rs. 50 will be charged and in return, SLT-MOBITEL will match all public donations and will double the funds collected. The funds collected will be used to distribute dry rations, medical supplies and relief kits to Sri Lankan communities in distress.
