TextFugees is a web platform that enables organisations to communicate personalised information to refugees in their native language by SMS. TextFugees is a web platform that allows organisations across Europe to communicate more efficiently via text messages with the refugees they support. Nonprofits have trouble communicating with refugees at a large scale due to language barriers and lack of access to the internet. Textfugees allows nonprofits to send customised text messages to refugees which are instantly translated into their native language. Organisations that support refugees are able to manage their own contacts through a customised tag system (eg: location, interests, housing etc.) that allows them to quickly sort and send the most appropriate information to their beneficiaries.
