IRIN - Central and Eastern Africa is pleased to announce a new service.

IRIN-CEA "pagernews" can be delivered by pager to subscribers in Kenya. One-sentence "news flashes" will announce breaking humanitarian news, time-sensitive headlines or exclusives from the IRIN-CEA news and information network. In order to receive this service, you will need to already have a pager. Presently, the IRIN "news flashes" are available only to subscribers of Kenya's Paging Services Limited, but we would be happy to make similar arrangements with other paging companies in the region or further afield, to provide a broader service. If you are interested in receiving this free - and unprecedented - service, please contact us by e-mail, phone or fax with your pager number.
