My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Humanity Road, Boydton, VA, USA
I'm a medical doctor and I lead disaster response teams. I've led teams for the US Navy, FEMA, the Roddenberry Foundation, and others in Iraq, Afghanistan, Katrina, Port-au-Prince, Banda Aceh, Tacloban, Kathmandu, Izmit, and more. Over the past several years I've come to expect to see Humanity Road at work by the time I arrive in any event and that's been consistently so, including the most recent Nepalese Earthquake. Cat and her team were coordinating communications between dozens of organizations inside the first three days after the earthquake and they continued through my own ten-day team deployment there and back. I was able to ask her team questions while we prepared for deployment and get answers relayed from experts within hours. I was able to give her updates from our work in the foothills of the Himalayas and her team relayed our status and our needs to other teams within minutes. I now consider Humanity Road an integral asset for us during responses and I seek them out before I go anywhere. One of the most valuable attributes any of us can ask for is professional reliability and Humanity Road is there, every time. Speaking for my own teams, remembering far-away nights in the dark linked only by satellite phone, Cat and her volunteers have our deep thanks.
