Why can't I call or text from West Africa?

EE say they are going to cancel my number. I am currently in West Africa and can't call or text the UK. Before coming I visited an EE shop and they said it was all fine and that I would be able to make calls. I can't! I am in West Africa volunteering with a charity for another 5 months. What do I do? I don't want lose my number.

@Guy77  If your on payg you need to have credit on your account to send texts while there and you need to send a chargeable call/text at least once every 2 months to keep your line active.

Hi. I have lots of credit but still I can't text or call. This has been the situation since I arrived.
