Verizon providing free voice calls to Haiti from U.S. Verizon has announced that all calling fees for wireless and home users making calls to Haiti from the U.S. have been waived from now until the end of the month.
Any calls made since the time of the disaster on January 12th will also be credited back on your next statement, says the company.

"Communicating and connecting families is essential to what our business stands for, and who we are. During this major relief effort as communication systems are starting to come back on line, we understand the importance of being in touch with the people who matter most,” added Dan Mead, COO at Verizon Wireless.

As reported earlier, anyone with a cell phone can help the relief efforts by texting “HAITI” to 90999, which donates $10 to the American Red Cross.

Glad to see Verizon treating the Hatians better than their US customers.
