Text “swat” to help Pakistan’s displaced

Madam Secretary passes on a text message-based appeal made by Secretary Clinton yesterday to help raise emergency humanitarian relief funds for displaced persons in Pakistan’s embattled Swat Valley: text “swat” to 20222 to provide a $5 donation to the UN refugee agency’s life-saving work in the region.  You can also provide your support directly through UNHCR.

Readers will also be reassured to know that Telecoms sans Frontieres, those technological humanitarians extraordinaires, have deployed to Pakistan to provide emergency telecommunications infrastructure.
