Presentation of Humanitas Solutions

Dr. Abdo Shabah was with the Canadian Red Cross in response to the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake. As an emergency physician, he experienced with the lack of technical support on the field and realized the impact of this scarcity on lifesaving outcomes. Upon his return, he thus decided to start a project along with a group of passionate people. Their ultimate goal is to develop relevant technologies for frontline workers. This is how Humanitas Solutions started in 2013.
Today, Humanitas Solutions is a creative team of designers, developers, and researchers. People exchange their expertise, compassion, and initiatives leading to a shared, determined destination.
