Thank you Russel and Laura for sharing the resources.

@David, At the moment we are in touch with the Tanzania Red Cross who have
done a preliminary assessment of the situation on ground (see attachment).
They have also expressed great need for maps as they would be of great use
in their efforts.

The local OSM Communities in Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania are also shown
great interest and are ready to map if do an activation for the affected
area.

Geoffrey.
