Thanks for the post. It's great to see the relation developing with ICRC
from remote mapping on sat imagery to this current first interaction with
Red Cross volunteers on the ground through Walking papers. I'd like to add
that ICRC is also considering and preparing in Walikale to carry out edits
on the ground which is particularly exciting. In addition to this,
Guensmork, Judith (Communaute OpenStreetMap Hatii), Kenelson (Saint-Marc
mappers), Jean-Guilhem and I (HOT) met with French and Haitian Red Cross in
Veyrette (Artibonite/ Haiti) to discuss on the ground support to their
teams involved in Water and Sanitation as well as DRR activities in Bas
Artibonite. There is a great potential for both HOT/ OSM and the Red Cross
in this given the dual nature of both voluntary movements and also
