Life contact / WIFI bracelet

Life contact

The use of WI-FI by refugees is mainly used to contact family and friends, and to report each other safely. Skype, Facebook Messenger, Viber and Whatsapp are the software they use most often. The second function is to translate and convert currency, as well as exchange useful information with other refugees.
WI-FI can also play a navigation and record journey on the journey of refugees. Especially for refugees drifting in Turkey and Greece, Google Map is an indispensable tool for them.
