Humanlink was asked to present at Netsquared's Tech Tuesday on October 3rd, 2007. A good time was had by all and a podcast of the event can be found here.

Indonesia Earthquake Response

On March 6th, 2007 a 6.3 earthquake struck the inland region of West Sumatra, Indonesia. A two person Humanlink team was on the ground less than a week later to provide technical support to the international and local aid organizations in the area. The team consisted of Humanlink Executive Director Jonathan Thompson and technical volunteer Jeff Allen.

Landing in Padang we attended a late night meeting with representatives from Oxfam, IOM and IMC to find out more about the angencies' response and to offer our services. The following morning we made our way to the provincial response center (Satkorlak), housed at the governors compound, to gather more information about the coordination efforts.


Humanlink and the Myanmar Cyclone

InSTEDD  logo

We are currently working on a project with InSTEDD to build out their GeoChat platform to enable Thuraya users to send their GPS coordinates via SMS to any recipient's email. We have been working furiously for the last 48hrs to make this project a reality and hopefully have it ready for teams heading to Burma.

We'll post all the info here as soon as we have it up and running. You can also check our blog.

Drop us a line at if you'd like to get involved. Your financial support will also help ensure that we can keep working full time on this project.

Many thanks for checking in!
