The initiative allows swift digital collection of relief funds while ensuring social distancing. Being a people-centric brand, UPaisa has always focused on customer enablement, and providing convenience while staying at home is a testament of its commitment to support Pakistanis during these difficult times. The provision of smart solutions such as these will allow people to respect the lockdown and at the same time help the ones who are finding it extremely difficult to make ends meet.
As a socially responsible organization Ufone advises all its customers to adopt preventive measures against Coronavirus. These include washing hands thoroughly and often, with soap, for 20 seconds, avoid shaking hands, especially with those who appear to be ill, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible, disinfect shared surfaces, such as doorknobs, bathroom taps, or tabletops, stay home when sick and maintain a distance of at least 1 meter from any individual. By adopting basic protective measures we can keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.
