The Ebola Outbreak that struck Guinea in march 2014 later spread to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria causing at the beginning of august 1711 infections and 932 deaths. Aid organisations are taking emergency measures to contain the spread of this highly infectious and deadly virus. It is crucial for this work to drive rapidly through the territory and quickly locate those infected.

Kate Chapman. Leader, friend, mentor, creator, grant writer, smart girl, cool-chick, adventurer, founder, volunteer. These are many of the wonderful traits that make up Kate, but at her core, she’s a giver. She believes in what she does and works harder, and more kindly, than pretty much anyone I’ve ever known.

Preparations, Preparations and Lots of Preparations is how best i can describe the third of the OSM Training in Tanzania. We reported at Buni Hub at about 9:18am Steve, Geoffrey, Jeff and later on Paul came through. Today we had nothing to do with the drones but the team (Sensefly) still headed out to shoot some more aerial imagery. With no waste of time we went straight away to making final preparations for the "COMMUNITY MAPPING FOR FLOOD RESILIENCE LAUNCH" which will run under Open Street Map.
