ABS-CBNmobile announced it is giving away 100,000 SIM cards for free to the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda to help them connect and communicate with their loved ones.
The announcement was made at ABS-CBN’s “Tulong Na, Tabang Na, Tayo Na! An All-Star Benefit Concert” aired on ABS-CBN Sunday night (Nov 17) by actor Piolo Pascual, who also appears in the TV spot along with ABS-CBN stars John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu, and Enrique Gil.
The SIM cards will be given away along with relief packages, in tandem with Sagip Kapamilya relief efforts in several Yolanda-hit areas.
Each ABS-CBNmobile SIM card has free prepaid load worth P50, 15 free texts to all networks, and 5MB of Internet that the survivors can use to connect with their loved ones.
Kapamilyas outside the calamity areas can help too. ABS-CBNmobile will make available another 100,000 SIM cards to sell in Metro Manila and other areas not affected by the typhoon to enable the sharing of load with the survivors.
Just buy ABS-CBNmobile SIM cards found in sari-sari stores and tiangges and share load by texting Share<space><amount> and send to 2131. Any of the following load amounts can be shared: P10, P20, P50, P100.
All load shared will be collected and distributed to the Yolanda survivors. To find out how much load has been shared, ABS-CBNmobile SIM card subscribers can text Share<space>Status to 2131. All transactions to 2131 are free.
Given the limited telecom signal and access to television currently being experienced in Yolanda-ravaged areas, ABS-CBNmobile and SkyCable have also partnered to put up TV viewing stations and calling centers, starting with Tacloban and to be rolled out in other key calamity areas. The viewing and calling centers will be available until power and communication lines in affected areas have normalized.
To find out the locations where ABS-CBNmobile SIMs are now available, just call 7878 through your ABS-CBNmobile SIM card or 266-7878 from your landline.
