Telecom avails COVID-19 WhatsApp number for people living with disabilities
Telecom Namibia has sponsored a WhatsApp number which will be used by people with hearing impairment, who are unable to dial in on the toll-free COVID-19 number.
The WhatsApp number 0851 100 100 enables and expands the inclusion of people living with disabilities, mainly the hearing impaired in the COVID-19 response measures.
Telecom said with this sponsorship, they have made it possible for persons with hearing impairment to share any concerns they may have about COVID-19 by sending text messages to the national response numbers.
