EVERY VOICE SHOULD BE HEARD
WHEN DISASTER STRIKES – HUMANITY ROAD IS LISTENING
PROVIDING VALUABLE RESOURCES AND COMMUNICATION IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS
Humanity Road – Disaster Respond
Humanity Road (#hmrd) connects people, animals and emergency officials with help and resources when disaster strikes. During a disaster, impacted areas become overwhelmed, and viable lifesaving solutions and information can become impossible to find. Humanity Road is an additional lifeline (the bridge) for the affected public, local officials and emergency response teams. Using innovative technology and social listening platforms, Humanity Road helps locate, organize and connect people and communities with valuable information and critical resources.
On September 10, 2018, as Hurricane Florence approached the Carolinas, we put out the call to Humanity Road for assistance. Humanity Road began by amplifying our trusted source social media accounts and monitored for unmet needs from our public. They then added value to their service by providing us with crowd sourced and other information including the marine vessels still off our coastline.
WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT
Mission: We help of 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.
WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO SAVE LIVES
Humanity Road leverages innovative technology to identify and address critical needs, employing machine learning to enhance its capabilities. Following the successful resolution of a situation, Humanity Road undertakes a comprehensive review and executes improvement plans for its machine learning systems. Additionally, the organization actively collaborates with local governments and emergency responders to facilitate their adaptation and preparedness for future activations.
Speaking of our supporters, we receive invaluable assistance from a multitude of individuals and organizations in various situations. These supporters contribute not only essential supplies but also vital medications. One notable supporter is a Canadian pharmacy that generously donates a substantial quantity of critically needed medications for charitable purposes. Thanks to their contributions, our organization can promptly provide assistance to those who have lost their homes or are in a physically fragile state following natural disasters.
Every year, we help thousands of people and animals survive sudden onset disaster. Some of those rescued were never heard, Humanity Road uses pattern recognition techniques and helps give them a voice by training others to listen for the silent cry.
