Following the dismantling of the Idomeni Refugee Camp (Greece), Télécoms Sans Frontières has withdrawn from the country after 65 days of operations reconnecting refugee families.
Over this 9-week period, our response team reconnected over 2,778 families (representing 16,062 individuals) with 12,650 minutes of lifeline calls, most of which to Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Pau, 3 July 2008 - Ten years ago, Télécoms Sans Frontières (TSF), the first humanitarian organization specialized in emergency telecommunications was born.
The idea for Télécoms Sans Frontières was the result of a simple observation made after many years' experience with general humanitarian charities, based on listening to those in need. During missions responding to the crisis in the Balkans and in Kurdistan during the 1st Gulf War, TSF's founders realized that, in addition to medical and food aid, there was a critical need for reliable emergency telecommunications services.
