ITU deploys emergency communication equipment in Myanmar   -  

International relief effort underway in aftermath of widespread floods

Geneva, 18 August 2015 - ITU has deployed emergency telecommunication equipment in Myanmar following severe floods which have claimed many lives and submerged more than 200,000 acres of farmland, damaging essential infrastructure and thousands of homes.

The emergency equipment deployed by ITU includes Iridium satellite phones, Inmarsat satellite terminals (Broadband Global Area Networks), accessories and laptops to support rescue and relief coordination efforts.

"ITU has deployed emergency telecommunication equipment this year in Malawi, Vanuatu, The Federated States of Micronesia, Mozambique, Nepal, and now Myanmar," said ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao. "I would like to express my deepest condolences to the people and Government of Myanmar following loss of life and widespread devastation caused by recent floods across the country."
