The Sahana Software Foundation saves lives by providing information solutions to help communities prepare for and respond to disasters.
When a disaster strikes on the scale of Typhoon Haiyan or Hurricane Sandy, no one organization can effectively manage the response.
The Sahana Software Foundation is currently seeking funds to support our response to Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, as well as Hurricane Sandy long term recovery operations in and around New York City, and to support our other programs.
For the Philippines, the Sahana Software Foundation is seeking $12,000 to assist the Philippine Department of Health to extend the use of Sahana’s Eden software to civil society groups responsible for distributing medical supplies to rural health centers nationally. These funds will be used for server hosting, feature development and support for the system for the next three months. Please see our Philippines Appeal for more information and updates about our program.
Support for the Sahana Software Foundation is a highly cost effective way of helping the people impacted by disasters. Without systems, the challenges of coordinations and distribution of relief aid over a large geographic area devastated by a natural disaster can be overwhelming. Our systems are designed to work in these environments and to support the work of humanitarian agencies working under difficult and stressful conditions.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation to the Sahana Software Foundation today.
