In 2020 One Shot Immersive launched a VR mass casualty triage training experience in Yemen, a country that continues to endure the worlds worst humanitarian crisis. Following this world first, further training was carried out with the WHO in Somalia, Somaliland and Yemen in 2021. The company also released a translasted version of a “Stop The Bleed” training video for Ukraine early in 2022. The company has created a life saving tool for the world’s most disadvantaged populations. But there is no money in saving poor lives. This is the story of a failed business, a humanitarian success and a long list of lessons learnt. It is both a heartwarming and heartbreaking story of collective human endeavour and a tech industry that currently exists for value over values. I will propose a model of humanitarian innovation that acknowledges our weaknesses and aims to harness the best of us.
