Wind Mobile offering free phones, service to Syrian refugees
posted almost 5 years ago by BurlingtonFire from City of Burlington
In a news release, the mobile carrier says Hyla Mobile and Lifeline Syria are helping with this initiative that aims to make the transition process a smoother one for newcomers to Canada.
"Canadians are responding with compassion and generosity to the plight of Syrians who have been forced to flee their homeland. We want to do what we can to help," said Jennifer Douglas, Wind Mobile's vice-president of marketing.
On Wind's website, the wireless provider says they are "committed to providing the basic necessity of mobile communication to incoming refugee families embarking on a new life here in Canada."
"Syrian refugee families arriving in the Greater Toronto Area over the course of the next two years will be eligible to receive a mobile phone and two years of Wind service, free of charge."
