Umniah Gives Away 3,000 Free Sim Cards to Returning Students Quarantined in the Dead Sea May 11, 2020 – Amman, Jordan: In a show of support for Jordanians, and in view of the difficult situation that the country is going through due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Umniah gave away 3,000 free SIM cards to students currently in mandatory isolation at the Dead Sea. The students, who recently returned from abroad, will receive 20 gigabytes of free Internet as well as 200 minutes of local talk tine in an effort to ease their burden during their mandatory quarantine. A team from Umniah, in cooperation with the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission, distributed the free mobile phone lines to students upon their return, a move that the company hopes will help maintain communication between them and their families who reside throughout the Kingdom, as well as aid them in continuing their studies remotely. Since the beginning of the country’s state of emergency and the accompanying preventative measures announced by the Jordanian government to battle the global coronavirus pandemic, Umniah has been at the forefront of companies responding to the call of duty, offering cash donations to those less fortunate as well as free browsing on its network for students utilizing its Darsak application on both mobile phones and home Internet subscriptions. The company also doubled the Internet capacity of all mobile prepaid lines free of charge. Umniah has also worked closely with its strategic partner Naua, an organization under the umbrella of the Crown Prince Foundation, on its ‘Their Daily Payment is on Us’ initiative, donating funds to 2,500 day workers who have been the hardest hit by the country’s comprehensive closure. -End-
