"I have every confidence that once you get to know MapAction and its amazing team, like me, you will be gripped and want to do whatever you can to support its vital work."

Harry, Duke of Sussex

MapAction is a humanitarian mapping charity that works through skilled volunteers. Its aim is to save lives and minimise suffering by making the response to humanitarian emergencies as efficient and effective as possible.

When a disaster strikes, people’s lives can be destroyed within a matter of seconds. In a landscape transformed by the disaster, the challenge for responders is to know where to start.

MapAction deploys skilled volunteers to the scene of a disaster within hours of an alert. In the acute phase of a response, our mapped analysis helps coordinate search-and-rescue efforts and the delivery of emergency aid. As the situation on the ground evolves, it helps responders understand the changing needs of survivors.

As a long-term measure we also help to prepare government authorities, responders and communities in vulnerable countries for the impact of disasters before they strike.

“MapAction has completely transformed the speed and accuracy with which we can programme our response. I can’t imagine us being successful without their support.”

Jesper Holmer Lund, United Nations’ Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
