Assisting flood affected communities with communications relief

As an emergency crisis response, Airtel Lanka announced that the company
has enabled its customers who are residing in flood affected areas, with free talk time and
data facilities.
Totalling over LKR 8 million, the telco revealed that daily allowances would be given for five
consecutive days from June 7, 2021, to provide communications relief to those affected by
the severe floods, helping them stay connected.
“As a responsible network provider, we believe that in times of distress we must proactively
assist affected communities with relief and accessibility. We understand that the unfortunate
combination of a pandemic, lockdown and floods is extremely difficult to deal with, and
hope that this benefit will help those in critical need of it,” Airtel Lanka Chief Executive
Officer and Managing Director, Ashish Chandra said.
The provision is given to Airtel users in the areas affected by floods, which include the
districts of Gampaha, Colombo, Kalutara, Ratnapura, Puttalam and Nuwara Eliya.
