Following Cyclone Debbie here in Australia we needed some quick intelligence on the extent of damage to cellular networks, which HR were able to provide quickly and painlessly. We are already using that data to help further build resilience in Australia. Without HR's support, this information would have been much more difficult for us to find. Also, the history of HR's situation reports provides an invaluable longitudinal data set on the impact of disasters on communications and other vital services.
Have had a brief time working with Humanity Road and must say the people are amazing. They very much care about the world and the events that affect others around the world. I have been very thankful to have met them and continue to work with them in many aspects. thank you for the great work all of you do.
Humanity Road (HR) is a unique not for profit organisation that remain steadfast and focused on what they are good at - 'closing the black hole of communication' by linking disaster affected communities to the emergency response organisations.
As a volunteer, i can attest to the fact that at Humanity Road, they matched words with action. In fact, i witnessed a moment where HR volunteers monitored three tropical storms, three hurricanes, two earthquakes and two disaster exercise within 48 hours.
HR volunteers are always eager to provide help, train volunteers and make a difference.
Humanity Road is one of the most inspiring and relevant non profits that I have worked with in recent times.
With a passion to help people during the disasters, the tools, support, the volunteers are always there providing reliable and accurate data & information.
A truly digital humanitarian organisation in spirit & grit making sure there is always someone to help!
I have worked with HumanityRoad for a number of years. During this time, I have managed a number of disasters and planned events.
Humanity Road has consistently been involved on a global scale while maintaining their interest in what happens locally.
Humanity Road is an excellent Non-Profit.
As a student , the ways in which I am being benefitted from being a part of this organization are:-
1) Practical and global exposure to what I am learning in class
2)Work at my convenience
3) Systematic training provided periodically or as per request
I chose to donate to Humanity Road because they are providing a service to the public for communications. This was one of the biggest gaps during Hurricane Katrina. Effective communications will help save lives. I always know I can rely on Humanity Road for the best information.
I reached out to Humanity Road on behalf of the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management in NZ. We're engaging with them around capability building for our public information function and exercise planning and development. Cat has been wonderful, happy to share knowledge, answer questions and provide advice. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship in the future.
After Hurricane Sandy in NYC our team of designers had a chance to work with Humanity Road, who were in the midst of supporting the most vulnerable citizens in New York City. HR gave us invaluable information about the immediate needs of rescue workers in a crises. Our product development benefitted greatly. They have continued to support and help our efforts by connecting us to people in different countries that do first responder work. HR are organized, compassionate and up to date with communication strategies and needs for emergency workers.
Humanity Road is a dedicated non-profit with a global volunteer network. Their training, tools, and support are fantastic and the volunteers are vigilant in producing accurate and reliable information during times of disaster and crisis. With Humanity Road there will always be someone there to respond and help those in need!
