#Hack4Good Global, Malta - Life Line

  1. 1. Definition of a Refugee A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it.
  2. 2. Problem • People are fleeing • get away from conflicts, wars etc • running away from dangerous situations • to find protection • Loosing touch with • family • Friends • Imagine losing your wife or children because you had to flee the country to save your life... • Imagine loosing your children to save their lives • Tracing currently is done manually by the NGOs: • Laborious • Costly • Not effective
  3. 3. Solution • We need something to connect each other • We believe in having an anonymous identity on the web • After creation of account • Connect with family • Connect with friends • Allows refugees to get key information in a: • Simpler • Quicker • Cheaper way than ever before • NGOs are more efficient
  4. 4. How it works • Register with the website • Pinpoint your current location • Before • When arriving at a destination • Contact Family & Friends • Send username to trusted family & friends • Approve/Decline Family & Friends to follow you • Friends & families will follow your journey from the day they have accepted you • Block
  5. 5. Potential Use • Gathering of data & statistics • Can be used by NGOs to provide refugees with an online platform for family tracing empowerment • Analyse data and share it for future reference, knowledge& study • Family reunite • Friends reunite
