Skype and Haiti
Many people in Haiti are without landline or cell phone coverage since the earthquake hit on Tuesday, and so tools like Skype have become vital.
When calling Haiti Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls are completely free, and many of you have been using them over the last couple of days to stay in touch with family and friends, or to contact co-workers or support agencies during this difficult time.
To help people further, we’re emailing vouchers for $2 US of Skype Credit to of all of our users in Haiti. They’ll start appearing in inboxes in about 24 hours’ time.
The credit will let you make at least an hour’s worth of calls to landlines in the US or other countries covered by our global rate, or at least 15 minutes of calls to the Dominican Republic. You can see all of our rates here.
Our hearts go out to all of you in Haiti.
