”Migrants today need information as much as food or a doctor”


Elena Pedrazzani, Digital Communication and marketing specialist at the International Federation of Red cross and Red crescent societies, sees a need for humanitarian organizations to change the way they operate. She means that providing wifi connection and laptops in refugee camps are just as essential as providing clean water and food, since information can keep people alive.


While engaging with technology could help meet the urgent need that migrants have for someone to listen, humanitarian organizations must keep in mind not to replace human touch with technology. Being ready to listen is the only way to know that the help they provide is actually solving problems.
