Mobitel, exchanged a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRCS) at Trace Expert City recently.

Under the terms of the MoU, Mobitel will be the Communication Partner for the SLRCS. Having the SLRCS sign on for Mobitel’s communication expertise reflects the perception of reliability of the mobile service provider for critical services that the SLRCS provides to the people of Sri Lanka, a company spokesman said.

In the current climate where flood and landslide warnings are being issued, having a reliable communication partner is crucial for a humanitarian body. This MoU marks yet another accomplishment for Mobitel.

CEO, Mobitel, Nalin Perera said, “Mobitel is proud to have been selected by the Sri Lanka Red Cross as their communications solution provider to offer the best in ICT products and services.

“Mobitel’s innovative and reliable services are truly enhancing communication, technology, health, and IT literacy opportunities for citizens throughout the nation.

“The SLRCS has been active in the recent flood disasters in Sri Lanka and is a highly reliable relief agency both locally and globally and it is a privilege for Mobitel to partner with such an organisation,” he said.

President, SLRCS Jagath Abeysinghe said, “Sri Lanka Red Cross Society provides humanitarian support during times of natural disasters and conflicts, or even community emergencies, providing critical services to save lives and provide essentials for survival and dignity of people.

“In our mission, we need a reliable communications partner who can not only provide advanced solutions to streamline our disaster management and community housing projects, but also provide connectivity and enhance our operations.

“We found these qualities in Mobitel and look forward to enjoying Mobitel’s communications solutions in enhancing our critical operations. Sri Lanka has suffered a series of natural disasters in recent years during which our services are badly needed by the disaster affected people and we believe Mobitel will provide the necessary support to ensure we function at our optimal best,” he said.

As part of the MoU, Mobitel will provide the SLRCS with a mobile donation platform (subscription based/on demand) and assist SLRCS Disaster Response Teams to better serve disaster-affected areas.

It will implement special communication programs and services in SLRCS housing and community building projects and extend latest technology assistance for SLRCS Disaster Management Operation rooms and command centers. - SJ
