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.

Humanity Road provided surge support to our volunteer-driven relief coordination for North India (Uttarakhand) floods and helped in the information collation on the Web, specifically with a 3W (Who-What-Where) report. The kind of active participation by HR volunteers in not just the specific tasks but overall in the coordination of this large volunteer group is absolutely commendable. I was also coordinator of this group and found the noteworthy skills shown from HR mates which are critical for both the overall goal of the work as well as collaboration. It includes drilling down on specificity, time-bound functions and reporting of each day for accountability. Really enjoyed working with you all, Cat et al.

I connected with Humanity Road via Twitter (@HumanityRoad) while researching earthquake relief organizations operating in Haiti. At the time, I was looking to provide assistance in the form of urgently needed goods or services where 100% of my donation would be applied for immediate use to benefit those in crisis. There were so many organizations to chose from, with each claiming their need for donations, but I didn't know who to trust with all certainty that my donation would directly (not indirectly) benefit those in need. Tracking their activity and learning more about the organization's goals, progress, and operational integrity, I reached out to Humanity Road with my concern and wishes. Highly knowledgeable, trained, and compassionate volunteers swiftly provided me with contact info, specifications, and guidance that facilitated my donation to the intended recipients in an incredibly expedient and efficient manner. With great satisfaction and gratitude, I knew I made the right choice to collaborate with Humanity Road.
