Prudence Foundation (PF) manages the Regional Volunteers Programme to provide assistance to communities in times of disaster. Faced with challenges by COVID-19 in 2021, PF was able to continue providing support by partnering with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known as Doctors Without Borders, to host virtual mapathons in 2021 and 2022.

About 170 colleagues from Prudential across Asia and Africa took part in the second edition of the Mapathon, which was held on two days in April 2022. Together, PRUvolunteers mapped over 6,400 buildings, helping to put missing places and communities in Nampula province, Mozambique, on the digital map. These digital maps are essential for first responders to reach affected areas during a crisis and provide aid.

“The Mapathon provides valuable support to MSF’s work in the remotest areas of the world, which rely heavily on humanitarian assistance,” said Marc Fancy, executive director of Prudence Foundation. “So, we are grateful to the PRU volunteers who have been generous with their time and skills assisting a very worthy cause.”

Prudence Foundation has also made a direct donation of HKD350,000 (US$44,600) to fund Doctors Without Borders’ activities in providing healthcare to people in need.
