Video conferencing service Skype announced that Filipinos affected by the super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) will be able to use their service free for 60 minutes.
In an email to customers, Skype said it is giving them a credit voucher that will allow them to make calls to their friends and loved ones.
“At this time, we know that getting in touch with friends, family and colleagues is vitally important. To help you do this, we’re giving you a credit voucher that will allow you to make up to 60 minutes of calls, depending on where you call in the world. You can also use it to send text messages directly from Skype. This can be redeemed immediately,” it said.
The email signed by “the people at Skype” adds that along the email is a redeemable voucher for the users in the Philippines.
You can redeem the voucher by going to skype.com/go/voucher and enter your Skype name and password, then enter the voucher code.
“We hope this gesture will help you reach loved ones,” it said.
