Melita Limited has announced that it is reimbursing all charges on calls made by its customers to Afghanistan during August 2021, including the 4 per cent excise duty which is applicable to mobile customers.

This reimbursement will be credited to almost 100 Melita customers who made such calls throughout last month.

August saw a time of turmoil in Afghanistan, after the withdrawal of US troops prompted an assault by the Taliban, who took over the war-torn country at break-neck speed – leaving thousands trying to flee the country’s borders.


Charles Karakas, Mobile Product Manager at Melita Limited, said, “In view of the situation that developed in Afghanistan we hope that this small gesture has helped our customers with friends and family in Afghanistan to remain in contact.”

Any Melita customers who have queries or concerns regarding contacting friends or relatives in Afghanistan can contact Melita customer care via the company’s social media channels or the website.
