Celcom Axiata Berhad distributed over 500 power banks to the victims of the Pasir Gudang toxic waste. The power banks were distributed to the affected families at Hospital Sultanah Aminah Johor Bahru, Hospital Sultan Ismail Johor Bahru and Pasir Gudang Indoor Stadium.
Celcom also offered free WiFi connectivity via its Celcom Home Wireless, a broadband service powered by Celcom’s 4G network, within the disaster relief operation centres of Hospital Sultanah Aminah Johor Bahru and Hospital Sultan Ismail Johor Bahru, allowing authority personnel to remain connected. The distribution of power banks to the affected families was led by Razali Abu Bakar, Head of Regional Retail Sales, Southern Region of Celcom Axiata Berhad, together with other Celcom employees.
Idham Nawawi, Chief Executive Officer of Celcom Axiata Berhad said the welfare of the people has always been close to the organisation’s heart, and Celcom is always willing to provide any assistance in times of need.
“During this period, Celcom’s network and technical teams are working around-the-clock to ensure connectivity. We want to assure those affected that they will be able to remain connected with their friends and family,” Idham added.
Meanwhile, as Celcom also prioritises the safety and welfare of its employees, Celcom’s Occupational Safety, Health & Environment team had successfully evacuated all Celcom employees and their families who reside within the area to safe zones.
