Aidmatrix Designs Website Aiding in Hurricane Relief
Donors can Use One-stop Site for Products and Financial Resources
Aidmatrix, using its technology and expertise, has created a website for public use to channel aid relief to those needing assistance in the aftermath of Dean.
"As a nonprofit organization, some of our core values include globalization, humanity, opportunity," said Scott McCallum, Aidmatrix president and CEO. "We know people are suffering from the storm, and we are in a position to help. It's our duty to seize this disaster and turn it into an opportunity."
Aidmatrix, a nonprofit built on partnerships between public and private sectors to assist nonprofits, uses the business concept of supply chain technology and makes it accessible for humanitarian aid.
The concept is simple: donors offer product, volunteer or other resources to people affected by an emergency. Nonprofits and governments, international to local, work in concert with the system to direct aid where it's most needed. And front-line responders can streamline offers in real-time response. Aidmatrix leverages this technology to efficiently mobilize in-kind products, alleviating the "disaster after the disaster" of unusable or wasted donations.
The Aidmatrix donations management site for Hurricane Dean, can facilitate aid to:
Food Bank Association of Mexico (Banco de Alimentos de Mexico)
Food Bank Association of Guatemala (Banco de Alimentos de Guatemala)
International Federation of Red Cross/Crescent Societies
World Emergency Relief - Central America
It supports a virtual exchange between those who want to donate and those needing help, getting the Right Aid to the Right People at the Right Time™. Log onto: http://www.aidmatrix.org/hurricane2007/
