It is anticipated that the team’s initial focus will be to help coordinate search and rescue efforts in the hope of finding more survivors. MapAction’s highly-trained volunteers will also map the needs of survivors, so that responders can target their aid accordingly.
MapAction has considerable experience of having responded to earthquakes, having undertaken major responses to the Nepal earthquakes last year, as well as the Haiti earthquake in 2010.
