Relief 2.0 was born out of our experience in Haiti. Although our multidisciplinary team had been involved in many disasters before, the January 10, 2010 earthquake in Haiti hit really close to our hearts and homes and many of us were now in a position to mobilize resources, make decisions and bring additional value beyond donations or pure volunteer workforce. We skipped steps, re-engineered processes and reinvented methodologies to deliver a quick response and run the last mile in the effective delivery of assistance with the support of mobile technologies, social networks and local partners.
And while our approach and actions have since reached as far as Japan and other places around the globe, our relationship with Haiti remains a close one, as we extend our efforts beyond efficient disaster response to sustainable recovery with dignity, inclusion, generation of wealth and opportunities.
