The humanitarian supplies manufacturer Field Ready, a US-based non-profit, works on-the-ground to help people directly impacted by the recent hurricanes. They tackle problems like lack of power, connectivity and water through making, and teaching skills to others. Field Ready has tools, equipment and staff on site but its staff face huge problems under the most challenging conditions. They require ingenuity, time, creativity, and experience in developing solutions that can then be constructed on the ground by skilled individuals.
To this end, Field Ready is partnering with Make: to mobilize the maker community and collect ideas, financial donations, technical remedies and scenario-specific projects that will facilitate, speed and support rebuilding efforts in the US Virgin Islands and other hurricane-ravaged areas. This is where you come in.
