Technology for Good: Save the Children

Technology for Good: Save the Children: "After the initial quake, our Information Services (IT) team quickly mobilized to provide communication equipment and technical personnel. First responders carried in portable, battery- powered, satellite communication systems to provide Internet and telephone connectivity.

Armed with VHF radios and satellite phones, they could communicate with each other and back to headquarters, bypassing Haiti's devastated telecommunications systems."
