Connecting Newly Resettled Refugees

With now over 70 million displaced people around the world, according to UNHCR’s annual Global Trends Report, the global refugee crisis is the highest seen by the UN Refugee Agency in its almost 70 years. It’s important to remember the people behind the numbers and the stories of resilience and hope each person represents.

Introducing RefugeeMobile

In response to the global refugee crisis, sparrow teamed up with several nonprofit agencies, including Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Refugee Services of Texas, Catholic Charities Fort Worth, and Notre Dame University Lab for Economic Opportunities, to create RefugeeMobile.

RefugeeMobile provides smartphones with tailored apps to help immigrants connect with services and community, navigate and learn, and thrive in their new home. Visit the RefugeeMobile program site to learn more.

When you choose “Refugees” as your cause, you help a refugee gain digital access through RefugeeMobile.
