Following the devastation of typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines on November 8, Tranglo, a leading international airtime and money transfer hub has joined forces with Smart Communications and more than 50 mobile operators and resellers globally to facilitate a donation via airtime transfers. Up until December 31, 2013, participating mobile subscribers can use this service to donate airtime.
Mobile subscribers can donate airtime to 63 999 7000 000, a dedicated number meant for donation using their local mobile airtime. This number will be made available starting 12 November till 31 December 2013. User can donate airtime in Philippines Peso denomination (PHP) from PHP60 till PHP1000. Airtime donated through this initiative will be credited to the Philippines Disaster Recovery Foundation, one of the three identified institutional conduits approved by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).
"I'm deeply saddened by the devastation caused by typhoon Haiyan and if there was ever a time to join forces with industry peers and consumers, now would be it," says HY Sia, CEO of Tranglo. "We are aware from reports that material donations such as food are difficult to disperse at the moment, due to compromised infrastructure and logistics. However Tranglo is in a position to channel airtime credit towards the relief foundation as assistance during this tough time."
