Natural disasters wreck lives and infrastructure, and whilst some of these disasters are predictable, the damage is disastrous. Vodacom is a proud corporate citizen ready to lend a hand in order to make a contribution to restore the damage caused by natural disasters.
True to our commitment, Vodacom supported relief efforts during the aftermath of cyclone Dineo and ensuing appeal by The National Institute for Disaster Management of Mozambique. We provided R3.7 million (20 million MT) to assist with relief efforts which included food, accommodation as well as essential building materials that will assist with the reconstruction of hospitals, classrooms and other public buildings. That was a contribution of a remarkable 90% of the call for funding from corporates and individuals by the Institute.
Further to the material, shelter and food security support, Vodacom reached out to the people on the ground by contributing R1.6 million ( 9 million MT) to enable customers to communicate with family and friends free, so that they would have peace of mind as to their wellbeing.
