Solidarity with the Ukrainian people

To enable communication and closeness with loved ones, as well as to support business activities at such a difficult time, from 25 February 2022, Fastweb has, as a sign of solidarity for all its residential and business customers, reduced to zero the cost of calls from landlines, text messages and roaming from mobile networks, to and from Ukraine.

In addition, Fastweb and its employees, through the donation of working hours doubled in value by the company, have supported two projects for the Ukrainian war victim population:

  • Over Euro 107,000 were donated to CESVI Fondazione Onlus, for the construction of a heated tent for the first reception in Záhony, Hungary;
  • Over Euro 160,000 were donated to Fondazione Progetto Arca Onlus, for refugee reception activities inside the new centre in Via Antonio Fortunato Stella in Milan, which offers assistance seven days a week to Ukrainian refugees arriving in the city.

We also donated 200 SIM cards to Arca to enable the Ukrainian refugees to stay in touch with friends and relatives.

Charity Calls

With the aim of promoting cancer prevention, Fastweb supported the tour of the new LILT (Lega Italiana per la Lotta contro i Tumori - Italian League for the Fight against Tumours) mobile clinic also in 2021, with a health mission: to bring cancer prevention to the most fragile and peripheral areas of the cities of Milan and Monza.

The mobile clinic, equipped with two areas for cutting-edge diagnostic examinations, has reached in fact the peripheral areas of Milan and Monza Brianza, where there are still few opportunities to make early diagnosis part of life. During the entire tour, the visits were open to all women who had never joined or visited the LILT Facilities, regardless of age.
