The Vodafone Foundation is committed to providing assistance in the area of disaster relief. Through the Vodafone Instant Network Programme we aim to deploy Vodafone Volunteers and technology in emergencies to provide free communications and technical support to aid agencies and victims and develop new technologies to support the humanitarian community. In conjunction with this we continue to support our emergency telecommunications response partners, Telecoms Sans Frontieres and World Food Programme in their work.
