As disaster manager and public worker for German Red Cross I had been looking for the ideal way to use Social Media for disaster communication when one of the team members invited me to Humanity Road. Very quickly I found out how efficient the use of Social Media can be in and during a disaster by being able to help organise a power generator for a clinic and an emergency helicopter transport, both in Haiti after the earthquake - all from my laptop in my living room in Germany! The leaders and co-volunteers are all sharing the deep passion to gather and spread useful information before, during and after a disaster. I am also very amazed by the trust that is set in each volunteer! A real chance for personal development. Through my engagement with Humanity Road I learned to know many precious and interesting people and organisations around the world.
