NetHope, in partnership with its nongovernmental (NGO) member agencies and the United Nation's Emergency Telecom Cluster, dispatched a disaster relief and IT specialist to Haiti today to set up a telecommunications infrastructure and wireless connectivity in Port-au-Prince.
The network will provide telecoms connectivity and network support to all of NetHope's 20 member agencies in the region.
Since the earthquake struck, NetHope has been planning its response and raising funds to bring technology equipment to the region. It's seen tremendous response from both individuals and corporations, including a $50,000 cash donation from Microsoft.
