In the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, Skype has become a very useful piece of communication. You see, phone networks are down and apparently Skype is become crucial for those who want to call out to friends and family.
To help Haitians get in touch with loved ones, Skype is emailing out $2 vouchers to all their users inside Haiti. This may not sound like a lot of money, but it will allow for more than an hour of calling to the United States and other countries on the low Skype global rate.
It is hard to know what to do in Haiti’s time of need and it’s great to see the Skype trying to make it possible for Haitians to call out. Kudos Skype!
