What is the Virtual Volunteer?
virtualvolunteer.org is an easy to use Red Cross and Red Crescent web application that helps people migrating access reliable and practical information and support wherever they are.
Universally accessible with any connected device, virtualvolunteer.org merges the technological expertise of IBM with decades of Red Cross and Red Crescent experience delivering humanitarian aid to those most in need.
Who is it for?
People migrating or considering migrating need trustworthy information to make decisions, stay healthy and get the help they need. virtualvolunteer.org puts crucial, reliable information at people’s fingertips and links them to services on the ground.
The application also provides resources for Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers and staff, so that they can channel the latest information and needed support to women, children and men in need.
This project is supported by IBM, Swedish Red Cross, Swiss Confederation and European Union Humanitarian Aid.
