One of the major problems that refugees are facing to easily access the information they need. The “My UNHCR” mobile App could help addressing this issue. The application should be developed in the context of the Syrian refugee crisis. It woud target the need of an specific part of the Syrian refugee population: Over half the Syrian refugees are media savvy youth. The application woudl be accessible either through dedicated kiosk or directly on refugee personal devices (smartphones or tablets)


Refugees deserve the best ideas, the best design and the best interface for this App. To develop this App, we need to think beyond the traditional humanitarian box.
