Vodafone sends CZK 300,000 in aid to Haiti

18. January 2010

As a socially responsible company, Vodafone is contributing to aid for the victims of the earthquake that devastated the island of Haiti. Through its partner non-profit organization People in Need, which is the initiator of the public SOS Haiti collection, the Vodafone Czech Republic Foundation is donating CZK 300,000 towards relief from the impacts of the catastrophic natural disaster. At the same time, employees are actively supporting the cause by sending donation SMS messages. “The Foundation is always ready to react quickly and flexibly to extraordinary events. Last year we swiftly established a fund for flood-stricken areas, now we are focusing on helping the victims of the earthquake on the island of Haiti,” says Inga Kaškelyte, Director of the Vodafone Czech Republic Foundation.
