MobileWeb supports SMS action for Africa. SMS ‘ja’ – ‘oui’ to 4666

The Horn of Africa is currently hit by one of the severest droughts in 20 years. 12 million people are at risk of starvation as the drought and famine intensifies across Somalia, Ethiopia, North of Kenya and Djibouti. The UN says this could lead to the biggest world food crisis of the 21st century and the different aid organizations are in need of  big support to help the victims.

The 4666 SMS action is a joint initiative of MobileWeb, KPN Group Belgium/Base, Mobistar, Proximus and Telenet and aims to raise money for the different aid organizations.

For every SMS message with the keyword ‘ja’ or ‘oui’ to 4666, 1euro is donated to the organizations. The Belgian mobile operators work together for this project and they support on the services of MobileWeb for the technical part.

Help the victims and send ‘ja’ – ‘oui’ to 4666

MobileWeb.be and the Belgian mobile operators Proximus, Mobistar and Base have joined forces to raise money for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

Tuesday January 12th, a severe earthquake with a magnitude of 7 on the scale of Richter has hit the poor western province of Haiti, a region of 2,2 million inhabitants.  The disaster has caused several thousands of victims, many severily wounded and an enormous material damage.  Several humanitarian groups and organisations have rushed to the disaster area to give support.

What can we do?
For every SMS message, containing the word JA or OUI sent to the shortcode 4666, you donate 1 euro to this action.  MobileWeb.be and the mobile operators have offered their services free of charge, so all donations will be entirely funded to the humanitarian organisations.
The action will run until January 31st.
