SHELTER WELCOME / App

SHELTER WELCOME

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD _01

The refugee crisis in Europe becomes increasingly serious. Currently, shelters available are insufficient to meet the needs. However, as I noticed in my primary research, some shelters are not operating at full capacity, while others are overcrowded. According to further research, information of these shelters was not accessible to all refugees and governments were not able to make effective policies. To bridge the gap between less-known shelters and refugees, I designed this SHELTER WELCOME, which offers a platform for refugees, NGOs and governments to exchange information.

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD _01

This tool is simple and can be very useful to refugees.
