PR Newswire waives distribution fees for all releases related to humanitarian efforts in Somalia

NEW YORK, US: Organisations offering humanitarian aid to the victims of the devastating famine in Somalia can distribute their messages through PR Newswire at no charge. PR Newswire is waiving fees on the distribution of news releases through a global crisis package for organisations wishing to communicate their efforts of assistance towards relief from the devastating famine in Somalia.
"With more than 29 000 children under the age of five dead from starvation over the past 90 days and over half a million other children severely malnourished, the crisis in Somalia requires the immediate attention of any and all organisations that can lend their help," said Scott Mozarsky, chief commercial officer, PR Newswire. "Any organisation, whether a PR Newswire customer or not, can use our media and online distribution network to convey their efforts of assistance to inform the greater public and media as well as stimulate support for those fighting for their lives."
