A little something we can do

Ethan Zuckerman suggests putting pressure on the phone companies in the Ivory Coast to provide free SMS messaging during this crisis when it’s hard for people to top up their cards. He points to the Texas in Africa blog that has posted the ways to contact the companies. It’d be a goodwill gesture on their part that could make a real difference to people trying to stay in contact with friends and family.

[FOLLOW-UP on April 6: Orange has responded very positively, providing a packet of free services to their customers in the Ivory Coast. Ethanz says you can thank them here. Well done, Orange!]
