In December a new app is being launched with purpose to be a social platform where Swedish citizen’s can help refugees in their daily life. The key to the app “Welcome” is the infomal social contact where the refugees can ask questions on everyday issues like where the nearest pharmacy is or how the school system works etc. There is also a function to invite refugees to different social activities. One of the developers of the app Emma Rosman says to DiGITAL that: “There is a demand from people that want to help with there time but does not know how to do it, besides to give money and clothes.” The Welcome-app is a brilliant way to solve this issue and to open the door to the civil society for the refugees.
