It is imperative that a common platform be set up for volunteers to access centralized information regarding a particular instance, i.e. disasters. Sharing the common geographic stand point, the Philippines and Indonesia are both in the Pacific Ring of Fire which makes the countries vulnerable to disasters induced by tectonic movement, volcanic eruptions and even strong typhoons. By having the venue to connect, we see platforms such as Indonesia Volunteering Hub as a great avenue to match particular skill sets to specific community needs.
