In a crisis environment, maintaining lines of communication is critically important. Ushahidi developed an open source platform that enables citizen reporting in crisis situations. A deadly earthquake struck Chile on February 27, 2010, cutting off many vulnerable people from traditional sources of information. Mozilla awarded a grant to enable Ushahidi volunteers to train Chilean civilians and government officials to utilize the Ushahidi platform during the relief effort.
