Making the Miles disappear with Lebara

In these days when migration is such a potent news story, it is sometimes very easy to forget that we are talking about people, who are faced with a new life, in a strange land, often leaving all family and friends behind. For those people, having the means of communicating with their loved ones is an important part of being able to successfully find that new life. That is why the work and services now being offered by international telecommunications brand Lebara is so, so important and vital.

Lebara started as an international communications company in 2001, but in recent years the services they have offered have become crucial to the migrant communities in the UK and beyond. They offer an excellent phone service which includes a free SIM for high-quality, low-cost international calls, including free Lebara to Lebara calls. They also have an award-winning multi-lingual customer service, something else that is so important, especially for those speaking English as a second language.

Being able to keep in touch with your roots, with your loved ones, and just being able to talk in your native tongue is just so important when you are living and working overseas. How many of us cherish a phone call to our loved ones when we go on holiday for just a couple of weeks? So a service that can re-connect you without extortionate costs is a great innovation. Lebara is just that.

My father-in-law was an Italian immigrant to the United Kingdom in the early 1960s, leaving behind his parents and siblings. Over the years he has made numerous trips home, and takes a real pleasure in phoning home and being able to chat to his family in Italian (this is even more important as his children do not speak the language.) The main problem with phoning Italy more regularly has always been the cost of the call, which means real news sharing and in-depth chatter is not always an option. This is true of today’s migrant community, so having a service that also allows you to buy minutes that you can send abroad, so your family can contact you, is also a pretty fantastic idea, and yet another string to the Lebara bow.
