Warmth, wifi and power in disaster areas

Our products provide infrastructure in the most difficult of locations, helping both aid workers and displaced persons stay in touch with each other and with the emergency services

Cooking Stations

The core of our solution is the ACE1 biomass stove, invented by African Clean Energy. Lack of infrastructure often leads to cold and hunger in disaster areas. By the aid relief workers arrive, cooking facilities are often insufficient. The ACE1 provides a portable kitchen.

Triangulation Security

Every phone connected to the product via WiFi gives an indication of the real time location of the relief worker carrying it. This is great for aid workers who want to keep track of their colleagues.

Extendible Mast

Every backpack comes with an extendible pole, carrying a 4G or Satcom wireless router providing extensive internet coverage.


Communicating practical information and maps to displaced persons is a top priority of relief organisations. By enabling the WiFi hotspot to send push messages, the users can be informed efficiently of their next step.


Every unit comes with over two dozen phone charging USB-slots, so that everyone is able to sap power. By deploying units along the shore and in the camps, coverage of power, warmth and wifi can be extended throughout a region.

Free of Charge

By providing these services free of charge, we make sure that they are actually used. We believe that having working communication channels in disaster stricken areas will pay for itself by enabling more efficient relief work and saving lives through lifelines.

    Great ideas are simple, which is why they often elicit incredulity. Devising a solution isn't what is incredible, turning it into reality is.
