Search Technologies has made a donation to relief efforts through the country’s National bank, which is doubling all donations with no limit.  We also provided funds to support direct ground relief organized by our local employees.  Funds will be used to help families who lost their homes or who will now need extensive home repairs.

“We are saddened by the devastation caused to the people of Costa Rica in the aftermath of Hurricane Otto, and it was without hesitation that we agreed to support our employees and local relief efforts,” said Kamran Khan, CEO of Search Technologies. “If there is a positive in a situation like this one, perhaps it is the opportunity to witness the selflessness and good will of people who extend themselves to help others in need. This is certainly evident in our Costa Rican team and we are proud of them,” he added.

Search Technologies employees in the area are specifically focusing their on-site relief efforts in those communities that are more difficult to reach by the government. They have been using their own vehicles and heavy equipment to deliver portable water, plastic containers for water, gas kitchens, and foam mattresses as well as working towards clearing the roads and areas overtaken by flooding.
