Access to information might just be the most precious commodity in Greece right now. As newly arrived refugees struggle to make sense of how to gain access to asylum, the volunteers at RefuComm have created an incredible video to teach refugees how to apply for asylum. Now they need to distribute it.
Since there's no access to wifi in the camps on Chios, they've developed an ingenious solution: micro SD cards packed with videos and information about refugees rights and the procedures. The info is available in languages they understand and can be accessed right from their phones. You can buy an SD card for a refugee for under $6 (just about 5€) that will be distributed within the next two weeks to new arrivals. We have distributed hundreds on Chios and are now collecting for the Island of Samos, before moving on to Lesvos and Kos. We have a wonderful local supplier in Greece who gets these delivered with 48 hours of order, or even less!
We place an order as soon as we get 50 purchases so please keep this project rolling!
