Problem- In September 2017, hurricane Maria devastated the small island of about 74,000. Disaster caused about $483 million worth of damage.

Solution- In March 2018, GUD members visited the island to perform an assessment. We learned how to support reconstruction efforts by collaborating with designers, engineers and local officials. There is a strong need for reliable communication network. Better communication will result in being able to access and share information faster.

Action- Implement a network infrastructure to address to enhance communication (Mesh Network).
*We need to secure funding to cover the mesh network implementation.
