Al Fanar Foundationand Vento.tv present you a tool for providing assistance and support to refugees who arrive in Europe looking for a dignified life through asylum and refuge.
VentoRefugees is a computer and mobile app that uses videoconference calls to connect refugees, and the volunteers who receive them, with translators who are able to be in any location.
Intended for NGO’s, social organisations and volunteers, this app gives you the opportunity to establish direct communication in any language with individuals who, due to their situation, need urgent linguistic assistance.
If you want to be a volunteer translator, you just need to download the VentoRefugeesappon your mobile (currently only with Android devices), or connect via web to register and get involved and contact directly the just-arrived persons. Whenever you have a a spare moment, simply activate your profile and you will then appear as available on the list of translators.
If you work for an NGO or as a volunteer helping migants and refugees, you just have to check the list of translators available, choose a language and set direct communication with a translator clicking on the icon to initiate the communication. Setting a connection can be done either through the web page or through the app.
Any multilingual person who has access to an internet connection has the opportunity to collaborate in welcoming thousands of migrants and refugees arriving to Europe.
