From the makers of LifeSpots, this app is for migrants and refugees, and for volunteers and organizations that help them. It shows the location and types of aid available on a map, with information about the opening days and hours. All of the aid shown in the app is from trusted aid organizations. The aid is categorized by type including: Legal/Admin/Info; Food; Shelter; Water; particular aid for Parents and Children, Unaccompanied Children, Women and Men; Health; Education; and Toilets and Showers.
The app is currently available in Europe, the United States and Turkey. The app only shows you what is available within 100 miles (150 kilometers) of where you are. There are services from more than 5,000 trusted service providers. Some services are available in multiple languages in addition to English, including Arabic and Farsi. More languages coming soon.
Don’t worry - we are not going to give this information to anyone (not police, not asylum authorities, no one)! And we won’t tell anyone where you are. We just want to show you help closest to you on a map.
No one can use this app to find or target you!
- A list of all aid nearby, with a description and location of the services
- A map view of aid nearby, shown by category of aid, using color coded icons
- Push notifications when there is urgent news in a particular location
- Many of the services are translated into multiple languages, including Arabic and Farsi.
- The app works offline - it lets you find services near you, and navigate to them when there is no internet.
Please note: continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
We improved performance and made some small design changes.
Ratings and Reviews
Bigotry cannot be hidden.
Those leaving bad reviews may think that their anonymity protects them against being judged for their bigotry. They should ask themselves a question. If they’re so certain that their beliefs are good and right, what reason is there to hide and be cowardly? Good people have no reason to hide behind a mask and evil cannot be disguised by one. You think you’re anonymous, but you cannot hide from yourselves even when you fool yourselves that no one else sees what you truly are. You hide because you’re aware of your own darkness and cruelty. You hate goodness and kindness in others because you envy it. You’re not incapable of it. You’ve chosen to be cold and dead and cruel. Don’t blame anyone else for that and don’t expect good people to follow just because their caring makes you uncomfortable. Grow up and live with how you choose to be or change yourself. Quit expecting the universe to stop for you.
I think it is disgusting the hatred that has infiltrated a real effort to help fellow human beings. If you disagree with helping folks, it seems reviewing an app designed to help people is an exercise in futility. I think it would be easier to just “proudly” post what a racist pig you are and move on. I don’t think it fair or reasonable to criticize those trying to help. Maybe if we were required to post with full details including our jobs it would cause those using the veil of anonymity to rethink their vile posts. And maybe their Moms need to see what kind of nasty people they have raised. As to the app- kudos for attempting to help those who are vulnerable, scared and in need of help. To the nasty folks, I pray you never find yourselves in similar need. It would be karma for sure.
Amazing resource for those in desperate need
This app ties together lots of information from different services that are working to help refugees in different aspects. Refugees can find where to have a hot shower, a hot meal, free legal services, English classes, groups for men and women, immigration services... and many more.
This is an incredible resource. Before this app a refugee would have had to spend hours tracking down the right service they needed - provided they even knew about it. Now they can search for what they need in seconds.
Mapping all these services is a great benefit to the people that have been marginalized in their countries. My hope is more people learn about this and spread the word!
