In a first for the industry, PTCL has offered ‘Free International Calling’ from Pakistan to Pakistanis displaced in military conflict in Ukraine and adjacent countries. Pakistanis will be able to contact dear ones in the following countries for free thanks to this extraordinarily generous move by the state-owned PTCL:
The move is in line with PTCL’s efforts to help Pakistanis communicate with loved ones who are now stuck in Ukraine and neighboring countries, awaiting diplomatic aid. It should be noted that on the 8th, 9th, and 10th of March 2022, all calls from the PTCL landline to the above-mentioned countries will be free of charge.
Moreover, there is no usage limit, so consumers can call the above-mentioned countries as much as they wish on these days.
It should be highlighted that Pakistan’s embassy in many European countries is actively attempting to rescue Pakistanis who have been forced to flee their homes as a result of the Ukraine conflict. The effort, however, is enormous and may take some time considering the intensity of the situation and the sheer number of individuals who must be evacuated.
In such a situation, PTCL stands with Pakistanis who are going through difficult times and is helping to ease the lives of their loved ones back home by providing completely free calling.
