CAMP AGUINDALDO, Quezon City – Cell sites in Marawi were activated to provide 15-day free call and short messaging services for soldiers and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the battle-stricken city starting Thursday, 22 June 2017.

“The AFP welcomes the support of Globe Telecom through the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to help the people of Marawi through the free communication services,” Colonel Edgard Arevalo, Public Affairs Chief said.

Mr. Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom, announced that all Globe and TM prepaid subscribers in Marawi City will receive a text message from Globe and TM to inform them about the promo.

“Through this gesture of support, our troops on the ground and the IDPs will find it easier to communicate with their respective families, friends, and loved ones as necessary or when opportunity permits,” Colonel Arevalo said.
