Wednesday, February 08, 2023 by Melita

Melita Ltd is refunding charges for international calls to Türkiye and Syria to support those affected by the devastating earthquake in the region.

Refunds will be issued for international calls made by Melita mobile and fixed telephony customers calling from Malta to Türkiye (+90) and Syria (+963).

More than 5,000 people have been reported dead so far after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck the region in the early hours of Monday morning.

Harald Roesch, Chief Executive Officer at Melita Limited, said: “The sudden loss of lives and homes from this natural disaster is a huge tragedy. By offering refunds we hope to help in the most direct way we can.  We know from offering similar support – in response to dire humanitarian situations in Afghanistan and Ukraine – that this is appreciated.”

Refunds will be applied on calls made between February 6 and 8.
