Starting from the beginning of last week, Israel has imposed a complete siege on the Gaza Strip, resulting in a lack of crucial resources, including water, electricity, fuel, and food supplies. This situation follows a terrorist attack by the Palestinian militant group Hamas on October 7th. Many Australians with family or friends in Israel, the Palestinian territories are eager to maintain contact and ensure the safety of their loved ones. Additionally, Afghanistan has experienced its third earthquake in a week. Nevertheless, long-distance and SMS communication to these regions can be expensive. Currently, some mobile carriers are supporting the Australian community by waiving charges.
