Most of you will be aware of the amazing effect that 'Digital Humanitarians' are having in Nepal at the moment. If anyone has some time to give then Standby Task Force could use some help.

Thanks!

We have an overwhelming number of urgent requests to respond to and responders are taking up to a day to reach some areas but finding out that other responders are already there. This takes up time that they could be helping another village where no one has been. So, we have our verification tool working now and we need to know what reports are still current. Can you please look at the website understand it and send it viral across social media. https://veri.ly/crisis/16

Verily is a website designed to help verify information by gathering evidence. Verily is a collection of questions (AKA "verification requests"). Please try to answer each question directly by providing evidence or by sending the question to the people who may know the answer. To help with that, on each question you will find buttons to share it via facebook, twitter or email. 
If you have any questions about verily, or you encounter any problems with it, please  email con...@veri.ly. Comments and suggestions are welcome!

Some information to get started with verification requests and evidence is available on the help page: https://veri.ly/help


Many thanks everyone

Jus

Justine Mackinnon

President,  Standby Task Force.
