June 20th is World Refugee Day. Many of us who spend our days in comfort of our own home, have a very vague idea how massive the problem is. Below is a video made by United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) that highlights global refugee trends of 2013. The message is loud, there are millions of people who need help.
What would you take with you, if you ended up… on uninhabited island, in unfamiliar country, on the moon? This ages old game takes a new twist when you ask this question any of the 51.2 million people who at the end of 2013 are counted as refugees or internally displaced. What would you take with you?
Many of these people had only minutes to pack before they had to run away from their homes in search of safety, leaving everything behind.
Gooddler makes it really easy to help. We offer a platform to helps displaced families to get whatever they need to get through the difficult time. If you know of a family that needs help, create a wishlist containing the items that family needs and share it with your friends. Items purchased on our platform will be delivered directly to them.
