Globe sets up more Libreng Tawag, Libreng Charging stations in areas hit by Typhoon Odette

To help communities affected by typhoon Odette, Globe has set up more Libreng Tawag and Libreng Charging (LTLC) stations in the Visayas and Mindanao regions.

Seventeen stations are now operational to help families connect with their loved ones. They are located in Negros Oriental and Occidental, Eastern and Western Samar, Iloilo City, Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental, Agusan del Norte, Cebu, and Bohol.

Ongoing service restorations in various areas affected by the typhoon have been hampered by the prolonged lack of commercial power. Cell sites equipped with alternate power such as gensets need to be refilled. However, deliveries of supplies are also hampered by roadblocks.

Since Friday, Globe has restored services in Bukidnon, Agusan del Sur, Camiguin, Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga Sibugay.

In the aftermath of typhoon Odette, about 40 towers were affected across Visayas and Mindanao. The highest impact were reported in Cebu, Negros, Bohol and Leyte. There were about 20 towers badly hit in Cebu.


Donation channels through the new GlobeOne app and GCash app are open for customers who may want to support relief operations. Partner organizations include Ayala Foundation Inc., GMA Kapuso Foundation, and Rise Against Hunger Philippines.

As part of Globe's support for communities affected by typhoon Odette, the company and its partner organizations started conducting relief efforts for 10,000 families last Dec. 20. The relief operations will benefit Siargao, Dinagat Islands, Maasin City, Butuan City, Cagayan de Oro City, Cebu CIty and municipalities in Palawan, Bohol, Iloilo, Leyte, Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental, Surigao del Notre, Surigao del Sur, and Bukidnon.
