"A smartphone provides a means of staying in touch with loved ones, of keeping up with the news, or navigating their way to safety. It carries pictures of those they’ve left behind, those they’ve lost, and those they hope to find."
"Amongst the gloom, there’s also a growing light — sometimes literally — in the form of new technologies. Technology can be used to change refugees’ lives for the better, and to push back against the forces that cause people to run from unstable, violent circumstances to find safe havens in our world."
Tomorrow REFUNITE's Director of Global Communication and Strategy will be speaking about emergency communication, connectivity and social networks at the Aid and International Development Forum - AIDF in Nairobi.
