Refugee Ministry Pilot Project in Athens
The [Refugee Bridge app ](http://www.refugeebridge.com/)has plenty of relevant, powerful content for refugees in Arabic, Farsi, and Dari. But how do we spread the word to refugees themselves?
From September 12-16, we conducted the Refugee Ministry pilot project in Athens. Our goal was to tell refugees about the app by giving them power banks. These devices can charge their phones, and then be recharged the next time that they have access to an outlet. For refugees who depend on their phones for everything from checking for places of shelter to contacting their families, such devices are enormously important. On the side of the power banks are a QR code and URL that lead to the page where they can download the app. Thus, every time they use the power banks, they see the name of a website that can bring them to Christ’s message of hope in their mother language!
We gave out 450 power banks among Syrian, Iranian, and Afghan refugees. Refugees loved the power banks.
