ABS-CBNmobile distributes 100,000 SIM cards to survivors of Yolanda as well as free text and calling centers to help in the journey to recovery.
ABS-CBNmobile provides prepaid SIM cards to help survivors communicate with family and friends. These will be given away in tandem with Sagip Kapamilya relief efforts in several Yolanda-hit areas, along with relief packages. Each ABS-CBNmobile SIM card has free prepaid load worth P50.00, 15 free texts to all networks and 5MB of internet.
ABS-CBN Kapamilyas outside the calamity areas can help too. ABS-CBNmobile will make available another 100,000 SIM cards to sell in Metro Manila and other areas not affected by the typhoon to enable the sharing of load with the survivors. Just buy ABS-CBNmobile SIM cards found in sari-sari stores and tiangges. You may call 7878 through ABS-CBNmobile SIM card or 2667878 from your landline to find out locations where ABS-CBNmobile SIMs are now available.
Once you have the SIM, you can share load by texting Share<space><amount> and send to 2131. You may share any of the following load amounts: P10, P20, P50, P100. All load shared will be collected and distributed to the Yolanda survivors. To find out how much load has been shared, ABS-CBNmobile SIM card subscribers can text Share<space>Status to 2131. All transactions to 2131 are free.
Given the limited telecom signal and access to television currently being experienced in said areas, ABS-CBNmobile and SkyCable have partnered to put up TV viewing and calling centers in Yolanda-stricken areas, starting with Tacloban and to be rolled out in other key calamity areas. The viewing and calling centers will be available until power and communication lines in affected areas have normalized.
