United Arab Emirates operator E& announced it is sending AED20 million worth of telecoms equipment to Turkey as part of efforts to aid the country in its recent natural disasters, reported Emirates News Agency.
The operator will donate over 4,000 radio and digital units to reactivate mobile phone networks and restore connectivity in earthquake-hit regions.
E& chairman of the board of directors Jassem Mohamed Bu Ataba Alzaabi said: "The E& group always supports the honourable initiatives of the UAE leadership that inspires us to be proactive in giving and providing support to individuals and communities.
"E& continues its humanitarian duty and stands in solidarity with the earthquake victims in Türkiye. Through this initiative, we seek to contribute to repairing and supporting the telecommunications infrastructure in those areas. We reaffirm our commitment to connecting communities and keeping individuals always connected."
The infrastructure donation is a continuation of a programme called Gallant Knight/2 which was started by the president and ruler of the UAE, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to support earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria.
