2015 - today //PROJECT//

ICOON for refugees helps refugees and helpers communicate. A simple book with 1,200 symbols and photos can overcome any language barrier. It uses pictures when words fail. With this non-profit book-project, our team around Gosia Warrink, Katja Koeberlin and Monika Pfau would like to make communication easier and provide as many free books as possible to helpers and helping organisations. 60,000 books were already spread. For every euro you donate we print one book. This help already financed an additional free android app which is available for download on Google play.

NEWS: First communication help-leaflet. Download and free distribution for humanitarian aid allowed. (DIN A4 leaflet with 300 symbols, 2 maps, license: CC-BY-ND 4.0)
