Community Powered Disaster Recovery (video)

On June 1st we weren’t disaster relief experts but on June 3rd we started faking it,” say Caitria and Morgan O’Neill.

After a freak tornado hit their town, these sisters felt they had no choice but to help themselves and their community. They did a great job and now they’re teaching other people how to step up in a crisis.

This is an inspirational “TED Talk” from two young women who had to learn to solve crisis problems quickly and with the bare minimum of resources.

Watch here:

The O’Neill sisters went on to create a crisis management in a box product which includes an intuitive software tool that anyone can use: the aim being that locals are given them so they can lead their own recovery before, during and after the government and aid agencies play a part.

They’re currently going around the US raising awareness for the resource.

And if TED loves it, so do we!
