MapAction is delighted to announce that it has won the AGI Award for Excellence with Impact for its Ebola response.
The AGI awards celebrate best practice from across the UK in the application of Geographic Information. MapAction was honoured to be shortlisted for three awards and win the category “Excellence with Impact”. The award was made in recognition of the courage and commitment of MapAction’s volunteers and staff who deployed to Ebola-affected countries to help map the crisis and stem the spread of Ebola.
MapAction’s Chief Executive, Liz Hughes, commented: “I never fail to be impressed and inspired by the commitment of our exceptional team of volunteers. From natural disasters to complex emergencies, I know they can be counted on to respond, but this was something out of the ordinary. I am incredibly proud that so many stepped forward to help in this most challenging of missions and made such a vital difference to mounting an effective response.”
