The Role of VSAT in Supporting NGOs during Disasters in Africa (Part 1): Mozambique and Uganda

Natural disasters such as floods, fires, and storms affect thousands of people in Africa. From the destruction of buildings to the spread of disease, natural disasters can devastate entire countries overnight and seriously disrupt the community with massive human, material, economic and environmental losses. To prevent these losses during disasters, emergency communication systems are critical in terms of safety, and ensuring the continuous operation and rapid recovery of emergency communication systems is more important than ever.

Mission-critical Communications for NGOs

Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) provide services, assistance, and aid to people and promote human rights, the environment, and health. NGOs seek to provide emergency humanitarian relief to victims of disasters or human conflicts, and they aim to promote long-range economic and social development in impoverished nations. NGOs also seek to promote respect for human rights, monitor human rights abuses, and promote peace by encouraging nonviolent conflict resolution. Their mission is to be present where people are lacking all the essentials of life, good environmental conditions, health, and security.
