Satellite phones for Haiti and Chile relief effort

Emergency relief efforts are underway in Haiti and Chile after two devastating earthquakes hit these countries earlier in the year. Aid organizations and government agencies from around the world are helping the victims of the earthquake to rebuild their communities.

You can help too by visiting the American Red Cross website or sending a text message "HAITI" to 90999 from a mobile phone to donate $10 to the Red Cross Haiti fund (More info).

As the existing communication infrastructure is damaged or non-existent in the countries affected by the earthquakes, Iridium and Inmarsat mobile satellite equipment is being deployed in the region to help aid organizations and personnel better coordinate their relief efforts.

SATTRANS will offer a $100 discount on Iridium 9555 satellite phones and the Iridium Emergency Package to all aid organizations and personnel working in Haiti and Chile. The phones are in stock in the Washington DC metro area and can be shipped or delivered as quickly as same business day. Call 1-877-688-4635 or email with your contact information.
