About these Live Sessions:

Techfugees launched an open and collaborative platform in March to map out how COVID-19 is affecting refugee & displaced communities across the world. After 6 months, we have decided to go further and not only map the impact the pandemic has on displaced communities.

Because we want the voice of local communities to be heard and widely shared, we’ve decided to organise bi-monthly live geographical update sessions to widely share concerns of locals on how to limit the impact of COVID-19 and other challenges on displaced communities and present potentially replicable existing tech solutions.
