Belgium: Mobile telephony provider ‘Base NV’ offers free calls and texts to and from Morocco

Base NV, the Mobile telephony provider, yesterday announced through its social media account BASE is making calls and text messages to and from Morocco free for one week to help with communication with earthquake victims, family and friends. This measure applies to both BASE & Telenet customers.

The company made this measure to provide assistance as quickly and efficiently as possible to make communication between family and friends in Belgium and Morocco as easy as possible.

More than 2,100 people have been killed, and over 2,421 are injured after a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Morocco on Friday. Mountain villages near the epicentre are affected mostly and destroyed within seconds.

As per stats, more than 5,000 Belgians are living in Morocco. The communication network of the earthquake-stricken region is yet to be repaired, so Base NV made calls and messages free for one week to help the individuals stay connected during this crisis.

As buildings and communities flattened, a desperate search continues for residents trapped beneath rubble. Transportation and communication are also affected due to the devastation caused by the powerful 6.8 magnitude Earthquake.

$5.3 million has been allocated by Belgium’s development minister for earthquake relief and reconstruction aid to be sent to Morocco in cash, and additional humanitarian aid will also be sent to Morocco.

The whole BASE & Telenet family expressed their deepest condolences to the victims of the earthquake in Morocco and prayed for their speedy recovery. The telephone company believes that their act of charity will help the Belgian people living in Morroco to stay connected with their loved ones.

The telephone services to and from Morocco will be free for one week to help communicate with earthquake victims, family and friends.

Base NV emphasizes that the best way to provide assistance as quickly and efficiently as possible is to facilitate communication between family and friends in Belgium and Morocco.
