In humanitarian crises, people affected by the unfolding events need more than physical necessities: they urgently need information. Since the 2004 tsunami in South East Asia, Internews has played a pioneering role in the field of humanitarian communications, working closely with local media and aid agencies to ensure that people affected by disaster have access to timely, reliable information in languages they understand.
