“We are aware of the natural calamity that has struck in various parts of Pakistan and believe that it is our duty to extend support towards the affected community. With the scale of devastation, we understand that a majority of the people using our network in the disaster-hit districts may not have access to mobile recharge, and hope the free calls will help not only family and friends but also authorities and relief workers to connect with people most pressed for rescue and relief.”
