Humanitarian crises persist. Many people lack access to basic human needs: food, adequate shelter, and­ clean water. We empower nonprofits and social change agents worldwide to relieve these problems.

We support scalable technology solutions that help disaster-relief teams move faster and provide vital services to more people when disasters strike.
