Mission: We help the public survive, sustain and reunite after catastrophic disaster by closing the black hole of communications. We monitor social media to save lives. We connect people and animal owners with those who can provide them aid.

Target demographics: people and animals impacted by disaster
Direct beneficiaries per year: aid providers rescue more than 100 people and give food and water to 10,000 more people impacted by disaster
Geographic areas served: places all over the world
Programs: monitoring social media to save lives, testing new disaster response tools and technology, and helping emergency officials plan and conduct preparedness campaigns and exercises
As an expert in HADR Radio Communications I truly understand the power of swift and clear communications. Humanity Road is one of the most inspiring and relevant non profits that exist in this sector today. Their obvious passion for helping people during the humanitarian disasters is equal only to the extraordinary results they achieve when they "deploy". The aggregated data that is collected via the various sources of social media they analyse helps guide the big organisations more efficiently in helping the affected people. However they also live and die by the adage that they must always keep the human in humanitarian relief, it may all be online but it always more about the people.
The most important aspect of any small organization is its people. I have known and worked with the principals of Humanity Road for many years, and I have always admired their drive, dedication, and talent. I have seen them persevere and succeed where much larger organizations have failed. They're the best.
