In 2016, Missing Maps (Humanitarian Open Street Map, MSF, American and Sierra Leone Red Cross) launched a project to survey geo-located vulnerabilities in Post-Ebola West Africa. Spanning Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, the project put thousands of communities onto the world map (Open Street Map), and created a capacity for the people of these countries to represent themselves and their needs.

If you have ever looked for these countries on google maps, you will realize that they are literally blank. Not any more!
