WIND Mobile is doing its part to help Syrian refugees, as it has partnered with Lifeline Syria. The wireless company will donate mobile phones and wireless service for free to incoming refugees.
WIND Mobile Marketing VP, Jennifer Douglas, said in a statement “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.”
Non-profit Lifeline Syria seeks to bring 1,000 Syrian refugees to the Greater Toronto Area as permanent residents, supported by private sponsors. Ratna Omidvar, Chair of Lifeline Syria, expressed “By giving them a way to stay connected, WIND Mobile will help these new arrivals settle in to life in their new adopted country.”
Canadians can also help by donating any mobile phones they have on hand to WIND Mobile retail locations.
