'Dialog Axiata' to Provide Free Mobile Phone Network to Island-wide MOH Officials & PHIs

Throwing their weight behind the national fight against alarming COVID-19 Pandemic in the country, Dialog Axiata Company Ltd has come forward to offer its network facility free of charge to all island-wide MOH officials and Public Health Inspectors (PHIs) in order for them to carry out their preventive roles in a more dynamic manner.

Officials of the Dialog Axiata and members of the PHIs' Association of Sri Lanka met Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, Head of the National Operations Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak, Chief of Defence Staff and Commander of the Army on Friday (6) afternoon at the Army Headquarters and explored possibilities of launching the project in a day or two as an appreciative gesture of their roles during this national crisis. The facility would enormously accelerate their emergency roles through quick communication and assist further promotion of their efficiency. Those PHIs working in most remote areas would be widely benefited as it would not cost them anything while performing legitimate duties.

Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva expressing his gratitude to the company for its thoughtfulness and generosity at this critical hour of the society spoke high of the risky roles, being played by Health workers, and particularly by country-wide PHIs who are so committed for the benefit of our people, irrespective of day or night.
