New Canaan, Connecticut – Bridge Foundation, the New Canaan, Connecticut based humanitarian relief organization announced it has partnered with Irish Charity"Haiti Connect" to assist the People of Haiti during the rebuilding process.

 

Restoring communications is essential to coordinating the relief efforts, as well as the effort to govern, police, educate and rebuild. The local telecommunications company reported severe damage to its network, and cellular companies are struggling to expand their networks for the increase in cell usage.

The goal is to help restore communications to the local authorities as well as the civilian population to encourage coordination and order. In Mid March, Haiti Connect mobilized and deployed its first team of qualified telecommunications engineers and support staff to build a number of Wi-Fi Mesh Networks in the affected regions of Haiti. Initial focus will be giving connectivity to government, local police stations, schools, hospitals, and other public areas.

This project is dedicated to work with and for the people ofHaiti. Building a network that can beused for years to come, channeling information to and from the Haitian people.The network will be maintained by the local people thereby improving theinfrastructure and providing jobs in Haiti.
