Peace Corps volunteers save 80% of international long distance call expense using callback!

Peace Corps volunteers save 80% of international long distance phone call expense by using international callback service to call family and friend in USA but enjoying US telecom technology and connection. The service I recommend is at .

You can find the rate to call US from Chili is only 10¢.

When you go to, look for the "Peace Corps Service" section to see some sample rates and then dig for the program
features and benefits. Please forward this message to your friends who are currently serving or planning to serve in that country so he/she can save $$$ when calling home!

Do you have a chronic illness or disability related to your Peace
Corps service? Are you dealing with OWCP to obtain medical benefits
or disability payments? If so, the following group may be of
interest to you:

A group of RPCVs with OWCP claims are banding together in an attempt
to get better service from OWCP, PC Medical Office, etc. Please
feel free to join us!

This is a student from the U.S. I have a great deal of questions to ask about the native peoples of Chile and their cultures. If anyone who has been there has some time and wishes to help, I'd appreciate if you would send me an email to schedule an online meeting. My e-mail adress is

I recently published a book, Santiago´s Children: What I Learned about Life at an Orphanage in Chile, about my experiences living and working at a small privately-run orphanage in Santiago, Chile in the early 1980s. I thought this would be of interest to people who had been the Peace Corps, especially those who had been volunteers in Chile. There is a webpage for the book, It is available at and is beginning to appear in some of the major bookstore chains.
