Phone Charging and Wifi in France for Refugees

Hundreds of refugees continue to arrive in Northern France and soon become homeless. We are out every day, come rain or shine, providing Wi-Fi and phone charging facilities to refugees who have been forcibly scattered across the region. With your support, we will continue to do so.

Situation

“When I arrived (in Europe) I had not spoken with my mum for more than two months…. I had no mobile phone, with laptops and wifi I could talk to my family in Sudan to let them know I am still alive” - Mudatha. Living homeless as a refugee is fraught with anxiety, loneliness and danger. Making contact with parents, partners or children that have been left behind at home, or even stranded in transit countries can relieve this tension slightly.

Solution

We are a mobile office and internet cafe on wheels. We have developed a special mobile hotspot that can provide Wifi on the move, for to up to 200 individuals at a time. We drive up, turn on the Wifi and phone charging stations and people rush to the van where they can sit, charge their phone and call and message their friends, family and loved ones, sheltered from the weather in a comfortable environment.
