With the passage of Hurricane IRMA on several islands in the Caribbean, Digicel today announced that it will provide customers in affected markets with free calls so they can communicate with their relatives.
Digicel Haiti will accompany its customers in the affected areas by providing them with a special allowance of 10 minutes and 50 SMSs after the passage of RMA to communicate with Digicel subscribers.
“We understand the need to be able to quickly contact our relatives to ensure that they are safe and sound after an emergency and we are happy to offer our customers the means to do so,” said Maarten Boute, the President of Digicel Haiti “The safety of our customers is always our highest priority. Thus, we encourage everyone to stay tuned to weather messages and to follow the safety instructions.”
In anticipation of Hurricane Irma, as of Monday, Digicel has activated its emergency plan.
With respect to the reopening of its offices in the affected areas, Digicel will keep its subscribers informed as the situation evolves.
