Internews’ mission to provide information to populations affected by a disaster or crisis is built on the idea that both the response and the recovery will be faster and more transparent by giving community leaders, local authorities, and relevant NGOs the opportunity to leverage local media to broadcast coordinated messages and encourage dialogue on pressing issues affecting local communities. Internews, when needed, works to rehabilitate radio stations in the most affected areas most areas and to provide them with basic power and information technology support, which enabled them to create, receive and transmit content.
