MapAction gets a visit from Prince Harry

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Britain's Prince Harry praised the volunteers of an emergency response organization after watching the staff respond to a mock situation on Thursday (September 26). Harry attended the event at MapAction, an organisation that helps co-ordinate relief operations during disasters, as a patron. A team of volunteers demonstrated how they respond to emergencies. "MapAction's ability to have experts on the ground within hours, collating this information in support of decision-makers has placed them at the very heart of international response efforts over the last 10 to 11 years. Obviously, myself, I am extremely proud to be patron of MapAction," Harry said. MapAction's teams have worked at more than 30 humanitarian crises, since the organisation first sent its mission in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
