CDI on it’s way to Lota!

1) CDI is on it’s way to the city of Lota, one of the poorest areas in the South of Chile previous to the earthquake and one that has suffered severely the effects of the earthquake. 2) During this week starting on 8th March, CDI will be giving access and connectivity to the community with the Mobile Telecentre funded by the Canadian Embassy in Chile. People will have an opportunity to reach out to their dear one’s as well as to the government, national and international community with their needs. Today many people want to help and would like to have information regarding the needs coming directly from the NGOs and people affected by the earthquake and tsunami. 3) Skype has confirmed their contribution to the project, consisting of 12 accounts with one month of free call to any phone in the world. Each one of these accounts will be set up in the 12 computers of the mobile telecentre. 4) Many other organizations and companies are being contacted in order for them to make their contribution.
