Global Help is your personal worldwide back-up insurance for emergencies large and small while on business trips and vacations and even at home. Breakdown or accident? Stolen wallet? Victim of a robbery? Need a doctor? Lost on the Oktoberfest? Need to call emergency medical services or your embassy? Global Help turns your iPhone into a mobile SOS-telephone and makes your iPod touch a virtual first aid kit just in case. Fast and easy-to-use – in 198 countries and currently in 7 languages.

• Foreign agencies, embassies, consulates, consulate generals and honorary consuls
