Propakistani.pk  26.08.2015

 

Mobilink donated a state-of-the-art mobile dispensary to Khidmat Foundation, at a handing over ceremony in Islamabad. The Foundation, working through the spirit of volunteerism of Mobilink employees, has a mission to provide improved access to education and healthcare, developing a clean and green Pakistan as well as providing relief during times of natural disasters.

 

Mobilink donated a state-of-the-art mobile dispensary to Khidmat Foundation, at a handing over ceremony in Islamabad. This newly delivered vehicle, fittingly titled the Mobile Dispensary, will be used by Khidmat Foundation to provide free medical assistance to the rural population around Islamabad who have a limited access to medical centers, dispensaries and hospitals. The dispensary houses a qualified doctor commissioned by Khidmat Foundation, basic testing tools for common ailments and stocks of various medicine. Its areas of operation include Bari Imam, Pind Sangrial, Alipur Farash, Romali and Loi Bhair. This move further strengthens the long standing partnership between the two organizations, which began back in 2007 when Mobilink Foundation donated its first mobile dispensary unit to Khidmat Foundation. Speaking at the ceremony about Mobilink Foundation’s Health initiatives, Omar Manzur, Head of Corporate Communications – Mobilink stated: Our aim with Mobilink Foundation’s investments in healthcare is very simple – the universal provision of basic but essential health services to every needy Pakistani. Towards this end the Foundation has supported a number of medical institutions across Pakistan through the provision of hospital supplies and medicine. Speaking about Mobilink’s partnership with Khidmat Foundation, he further added: Our partnership with Khidmat Foundation, a leading NGO, looks to provide greater impetus towards our goals and accelerates our initiatives in the health sector since it allows us to tap in to their large medical facilitation network. We will continue to look for ways to enhance this partnership for the greater good of the nation. The establishment of the Mobilink Foundation in 2008 is a reflection of the commitment of Mobilink and its employees towards their host communities. It is the only registered NGO that belongs to the Telecom Sector and winner of the GSMA Mobile Award 2013 for its SMS Based Literacy Program. The Foundation, working through the spirit of volunteerism of Mobilink employees, has a mission to provide improved access to education and healthcare, developing a clean and green Pakistan as well as providing relief during times of natural disasters.

Kyivstar resumes mobile services in six localities near ATO area

Itnews.com.ua  26.08.2015

 

Kyivstar said it has resumed its mobile services in six localities in the area of the antiterrorist operation in Donetsk and Lugansk regions which are controlled by Ukraine.

 

Специалисты телеком-оператора «Киевстар» продолжают восстанавливать мобильную связь на линии разграничения в зоне проведения антитеррористической операции. За прошедшую неделю в Донецкой области сотрудники «Киевстар» восстановили инфраструктуру мобильной связи в ряде населенных пунктов Новоазовского района. Так, снова функционируют базовые станции в поселках Сопино и Пионерское. В Марьинском районе возобновлена работа телеком-сети в поселке Острое. В Луганской области снова включены базовые станции в районном центре Славяносербск, а также городах Лисичанск и Золотое (Попаснянский район). Мобильная связь отсутствовала в этих населенных пунктах в течение нескольких недель из-за внешних повреждений оборудования и разрывов волоконно-оптических кабельных линий. Всего за прошедший месяц в Донецкой и Луганской областях технические специалисты «Киевстар» более 400 раз выезжали на объекты связи для устранения повреждений и проведения ремонтно-восстановительных работ. «Наши специалисты успешно справляются с устранением различных повреждений телеком-сети, которые практически ежедневно возникают в зоне антитеррористической операции. Несмотря на то, что работать приходится в сложных условиях, на территории, где периодически вспыхивают боевые действия, мы делаем все возможное, чтобы обеспечить своих абонентов возможностью связи с родными и близкими», – рассказывает Владимир Кабаненко, директор по технической эксплуатации сети и сервисов «Киевстар». В то же время «Киевстар» временно приостановил работу на оккупированной территории из-за систематических угроз своим объектам связи со стороны антиукраинских вооруженных формирований. «Наша компания не идет на компромиссы, когда вопрос касается защиты персональных данных клиентов и безопасности телеком-сети. На оккупированной территории такие риски существуют перманентно, поэтому мы приняли единственно правильное решение – временно приостановить там работу, до завершения оккупации», – добавил Владимир Кабаненко. В населенных пунктах Донецкой и Луганской областей, которые подконтрольны государственным органам Украины, «Киевстар» предоставляет услуги связи высокого качества и оперативно проводит восстановительные работы.
