Thousands of refugees are coming into Europe every day. They come from terrible and difficult places and the majority flee because there is no alternative for survival. As Christians we want to act and offer hospitality and care for the weak, as Jesus learned us to do.
LaunchingToday, April 6 2016, the app has been launched in the Netherlands. The first phase is available on the App Store and Google Play. We are very thankful for this special moment!
What’s this app all about?This app is helping refugees and newcomers find the information they need most. The app provides a bunch of locations in different countries, starting in the Netherlands. Germany and Greece are following and other countries are pending. Even when you’re offline, the app will still work for navigation. All locations are stored on your phone so you can navigate to locations using the compass function if you are disconnected from the Internet. The app will also help you communicate during your travel and your stay. The app is multilingual and is always displaying information in two languages, so you can also use it as a communication tool. Our main focus is to share love and show hospitality to the refugees. Our first goal is that refugees will start to use the app in their daily life. We want them to experience love and we want to show them our source of Love, Jesus.
