Call for Code - The United Nations Human Rights Office
I was invited to Geneva, Switzerland to take part in a hackathon with the United Nations Human Rights Office. We produced a Call for Code Solution Starter on Humanitarian Protection in Times of Disaster
Our challenge was to come up with innovative technology to ensure that following a natural disaster, the elderly, disabled and impoverished receive equal access to humanitarian action and assistance.
Apart from myself representing the Linux Foundation, other participants included IBM, Capgemini, Red Hat, Deutsche Telekom, Lloyds and RBS.
This #whd2019, I'm proud to be featured on @IBMDeveloper for my work addressing humanitarian issues.— Cheryl Hung (@oicheryl) August 19, 2019
It's an honor to see the #CallforCode starter kit I built being used by developers worldwide.
More power to #womenhumanitarians around the globe! https://t.co/48CaLMo7Ye pic.twitter.com/WdDfzX6wlf
