About Refugees United Modding Day

In continuation of the Rewired State/Refugees United Hack day in April 2012, we decided to run another hack/mod day to build on the success and requests from the community. The last weekend led Refugees United to completely overhaul systems, re-engineer the approach to search/match possibilities and algorithms and generally raise the bar in helping separated refugee families reconnect.

With global refugee numbers growing ever higher and with more than 180,000 refugees being helped in their search for missing families by Refugees United, we'd like to cordially invite all who are interested in helping to enable deprived refugee families find each other through mobile phone platforms to join us on Saturday 19th January 2013.

We were joined by Simon Engelbrecht, Ida Jeng and Kasper Neist Christjansen from Refugees United, who helped answer questions and build on ideas throughout the day.

Thanks to everyone who came along, 7 brillinat projects were presented. Refugees United are exploring the possibility of taking some of the projects further.
