In a time of fear and confusion, this app aims to provide refugees with a secure and accurate picture of where they are, where they need to go for help and what is available to them.
This app would enable refugees to self-organise to find, rate and review the location of essential services and safe havens.
GOOD NEWS!! The App you've all supported is due to be launched later today! After a few little hiccups along the way (outside of anyone's control) we are ready to launch. So get ready to DOWNLOAD THE APP and then share, share and SHARE some more so that SOLE Connect can provide a means of community and support to refugees and others who need it most.
The App that you've supported is now available! By now you should have received an email with the links to download the app. It's time to take action again! We need the app to go up the rankings in the app stores so that the refugee community knows it is there. The ways to do this are
1. DOWNLOAD the app! The greater the number of downloads, the higher the visibility
2. start adding pins of places in your area
3. rate the app in the app stores.
THANK YOU for your continued support. Now that the app is live, let's get it used by the communities who need it.
Hello Jenny, have you already contacted the Cities of Sanctuary network? (https://cityofsanctuary.org/about/ ) Surely they'd welcome this app?! Maybe see if there's a group locally to you (https://cityofsanctuary.org/about/groups/groups/ ) and contacting them would be best. Apols though if you're already On this Case
Congratulations on setting this up!
great idea :-)
Amazing idea, clearing space on my phone to make way for the app now!
Brilliant that you have taken it on Jenny. Where's the link to share with my networks?
