MTN supports Hajj Board with phones, airtime & 85% discount on data

MTN-MgrMTN, Ghana’s leading telecommunications service is offering 85% discount on data services to pilgrims of this year’s Hajj. Participants of the pilgrimage to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will also receive 30% discount on incoming voice calls as well as 18% discount on outgoing calls and text messages. The package is available to all prepaid and postpaid MTN customers roaming in Saudi Arabia on Mobily (Etisalat) networks.

The offers are designed to offer the pilgrims the opportunity to stay connected with family and friends whilst in Mecca.

In addition to these offers, MTN is also supporting the Hajj Board with a donation of 14 mobile handsets, airtime worth GH ¢7,500 and MTN souvenirs to facilitate the work of the Hajj Board.

Speaking during a presentation to the Hajj Board, the Senior Manager for Customer Service and Credit Management at MTN, Mr. Salihu Abu, reiterated MTN’s commitment to supporting the activities of the Hajj Board. He said, “The presentation of the items is a token from MTN to aid in the organization of the annual pilgrimage.”

Mr. Abu expressed MTN’s gratitude to the Muslim community, especially the National Hajj Board, for partnering with MTN over the past six years to develop meaningful offers for Mecca pilgrims.

Alhaji Abdul-Rauf Ibrahim Tanko, National Hajj Board Chairman, expressed his appreciation to Management of MTN for the commitment to supporting the Muslim community in diverse ways. He said he could only envisage the relationship growing from strength to strength.

MTN has been supportive of the Muslim community over the years. For the past nine years, the company has consistently donated cash, food items, drinks and airtime to the National Chief Imam during the celebration of the Eidul Fitr festival. As part of MTN’s 20th Anniversary celebrations this year, MTN made donations to the Regional Chief Imams in Ashanti, Western and Northern to support the celebration of this year’s Eidul Fitr.
