“The results are finally out and “Hack for Humanity” has come out as Winner of Hacker’s Choice Award in Non-Profit Category!!”
In July a team of Microsoft employees and other volunteers came together for the annual Hackathon to provide a tech solution to help newly arrived Syrian refugees navigate their way through their new community. The team developed an app they call Ahlan! (Welcome! in Arabic) that will provide information about their community, how to accomplish various tasks, links to services, emergency information, and more.
SCM wants to thank the Hack for Humanity team and congratulate them on their accomplishment. We look forward to getting the app out to the public as we know it will be an important resource for new refugees.
