The idea for TSF was the result of a simple observation made after many years of 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 realised that, in addition to medical and food aid, there was a critical need for reliable emergency telecomms services. Conflicts and emergencies often led to massive civilian displacement and separated families. Also, affected populations are often left with no communications infrastructure in place to find assistance and loved ones.

TSF use satellite communications equipment such as Inmarsat BGAN, Inmarsat GSPS and Iridium. This allows families affected by disaster 3 minutes to make important calls.

You can find out more about TSF at https://www.tsfi.org/

As of 23rd December 2014 we have 957 Facebook fans and 531 followers on Twitter. Let's get those numbers up!

* Donation will be made w/c 5th Jan 2015 up to the value of £500.
