MAHA alumni developing remote humanitarian assistance prototype

December 2018

Loek Peeters, a cofounder of HumanSurge and alum of the Master of Arts in Humanitarian Assistance (MAHA) Program, has recently teamed up with Turkish NGO Hayata Destek to create a prototype that would offer direct, remote assistance to empower humanitarians around the world. This would offer a platform for humanitarian experts to connect with local aid workers and help them with tasks that can be completed remotely. This is a new and innovative idea for the humanitarian field that has possibilities for enhancing localization!

They are currently in the development stage. Check out their 2 minute video here.
