Refugee Flow

by Abin Abraham and Will Su
June 22, 2019

Refugee Flow is an online platform focused on delivering immersive storytelling from the heart of the global refugee crisis.

By connecting people with immersive content that captures the experiences of refugees and refugee communities around the world, we aim to drive awareness and mobilize support for humane solutions to the refugee crisis.

In the first phase of the project, we have created an interactive data visualization of global refugee flows and communities. This tool displays the impact that conflict has in displacing people from their homes and communities, as well as the dangers, casualties, and border crossings that displaced migrants and refugees face in their search for safety.

In the next phase of the project we are exploring ways to tell the stories and experiences of refugees and displaced migrants through videos, audio recordings, and interviews. The focus of the experience is to build an emotional connection with the participants, encouraging them to get involved by emailing and contacting leaders and policy-makers, volunteering with resettlement programs and non-profit organizations in their communities, and donating to efforts helping displaced migrants and refugees on the ground.
