About these Live Sessions:
Techfugees launched an open and collaborative platform to map out how COVID-19 is affecting refugee & displaced communities across the world.
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, among other things, on displaced communities and present potentially replicable existing tech solutions.
