Leading telecommunications company Globe Telecom sets up Libreng Tawag stations in Pampanga and Pangasinan which were severely affected by the “habagat” to assist residents who needed to assure their family and friends of their safety or to request for aid if necessary.
Libreng Tawag is now available from August 16-18, 8 am to 5 pm, at the 3rd floor of the Calasiao Municipal Hall in Pangasinan, and the San Matias Elementary School and San Vicente Municipal Gym in Sto. Tomas, Pampanga. The said areas are being used as temporary evacuation sites for about 900 families.
Pangasinan and Pampanga are two of the areas in Luzon submerged in floodwaters as a result of heavy rains caused by the southwest monsoon over the weekend.
Through its Bangon Pinoy program, Globe provides help to Filipinos affected by disasters by providing communications facilities and relief operations.
