START of our ICOON for refugees crowdfunding campaign at Startnext.com

ICOON for refugees helps refugees communicate. A simple book with 1,000 symbols and photos can overcome any language barrier. It uses pictures when words fail. We would like to make communication easier when refugees and helpers meet and provide as many free books as possible to helpers and helping organisations. For every euro you donate we will print one book and make the free android app available for download.
Support our ICOON for refugees crowdfunding campaign! We believe, communication matters!
