  1. Finally, a system for logistic coordination. I’m from the Philippines, the problem with our National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) as the Civil Defense for disaster like this, is I believe they don’t have disaster management systems software or logistic systems software, which has been the major bottleneck of relief operation, a lack of coordination as they say. I was searching on the web for systems like this and ended with your site. Thanks for helping and reaching out with our country.

    1. Hi Jeff. Thanks for your comments. We hope to be of some assistance to the Philippine Department of Social Welfare and Development, Philippine Red Cross, and the Department of Health and civil society groups by providing some of these capabilities for parts of the massive relief and assistance operations now underway. Please stay posted to our site for more stories about how Sahana software is helping the people of the Philippines.
