United Nations country code – 888
On May 25th 2011, we announced that Voxbone would provide a means for United Nations agencies to stay in contact and communicate with one another quickly and easily via a unique United Nations country code – 888 – when responding with humanitarian aid in times of natural disasters. Under agreement with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Voxbone supplies numbers for the country code 888, which the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has assigned to OCHA for UN agencies that provide relief in the wake of natural disasters, such as the Southeast Asian tsunami or the earthquake in Haiti. Having its own special 888 country code allows the UN to assign specific numbers to agencies offering humanitarian assistance. Voxbone received this assignment because of its success since 2008 in enabling toll-free calling for consumers, businesses, governmental agencies and other entities through the iNum system. As evidence of Voxbone's commitment to social responsibility, we provide this service to the United Nations for free.
Voxbone's headquarters is located in the center of Brussels. To increase the sustainability of our mobility policy for employees, we provide a free full-service bicycle to every employee willing to use it regularly. This program boosts employee well being while cutting CO2 emissions.
