AMURTEL provides immediate relief to those affected by natural and human-made disasters. With the upsurge in these types of events, the need for services has increased.
AMURTEL partners with other organizations as well as providing direct assistance to those most impacted, distributing basic necessities of food, water, and medical care to those most in need. We also run child friendly spaces, help with post disaster cleanup, and provide psychosocial support to those affected physically and emotionally by trauma and tragedy.
When there are significant power outages, AMURTEL can deploy one of several Solar Outreach Systems to provide emergency lighting, the ability to charge phones, tablets, small appliances and power tools, as well as purify up to 600 gallons of water a day.
AMURTEL has been active in disaster relief in numerous countries around the world, offering support and hope to those affected by hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, drought, and fire.
We begin with urgently needed assistance to help people survive the immediate aftermath of a disaster, and then, if needed, partner with the community to develop sustainable long term programs in line with continuing needs.
Depending on the circumstances, we welcome volunteers to join our team.
