We Raise funds to help respond to Humanitarian disasters


After 10 years of trying I finally got a ballot space for the London Marathon! This will be my first marathon, but ive wanted to do it since I was a little kid.  The marathon will also round off my "year of endurance" after cycling from London to Paris in 24 hours last autumn and riding Lands End to John O'Groats this spring.

As a deployable MapAction volunteer I also thought it was a good chance to raise some money for them.  MapAction is a fantastic charity that works to ensure humanitarian responders have access to the maps & data they need to save lives & relieve suffering.

This year alone MapAction has deployed to: Madagascar for the cyclones, Moldova, Poland and Romania for the Ukraine Crisis, The Gambia for flooding and Paraguay for droughts.  MapAction has also supported remotely to Pakistan (flooding), Suriname (flooding), Afghanistan and Kenya (drought). This is on top of many preparedness and training missions to places including Burundi, South Sudan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan and lots of other work done from the UK.

MapAction is made up of volunteers who give their time and expertise in order to help people affected by disasters.  We deploy teams of mapping experts to the scene of a disaster to help ensure that the right aid gets to the right people, in the right place, at the right time.

About the charity

MapAction believes that applying geospatial expertise to humanitarian situations can greatly improve outcomes for the people affected. Global humanitarian needs outstrip resources. Expert geospatial and data analysis can help stretch those resources for maximum impact. Many professionals want to donate their energy and skills to help. MapAction is the bridge which enables them to do so effectively. We are a non-profit organisation that collaborates with partners around the world to help anticipate, prepare for and respond to humanitarian emergencies. We strive to ensure governments, regional and local disaster management agencies and humanitarian responders have access to the information and analysis that they need to make key decisions, at the right times, to save lives and alleviate suffering. We are a team of around 100 people, 75% of them expert volunteers, plus a small roster of standby consultants. Combining the passion of volunteerism with the rigour and reliability of professional standards, the ‘MapAction spirit’ is something we work hard to maintain and the willingness of our team to go the extra mile is often fed back to us.
