Distribute Aid is a collection of tech tools for grassroots refugee aid groups. These tools help the groups connect, manage their inventory, and collaborate on aid shipments. Our goal is to get more aid out there, faster, and to the people who need it most. The project is managed by Sara Lönegård and Taylor Fairbank, who have both been volunteering with a local refugee aid group in Scotland and want to use what they learned to address common issues in the field.

To us, Patreon is more than just a crowdfunding platform. If you become our patron you’ll join a community of people who care about refugees and want to see what it’s really like on the ground. Over the summer we are traveling around Europe to meet with as many refugee aid groups as we can, in order to better identify how to build these tools in the most useful way. During that journey we will share a lot of educational content and heartwarming stories, as well as highlight the wonderful people and groups we meet along the way.

Our combined experience in the fields of international relations, human rights, and high tech means we can create these tools. The funds you contribute will go directly towards development and hosting costs, which means refugee aid groups will be able to use them for free! Together we can build critical infrastructure to help refugees around the world.
