Problem Statement

Asylum seekers face barriers in accessing health support and don't have the same opportunities as everyone else. We asked how might we help Asylum seekers better access health support?


Customer / Problem

Asylum seekers and refugees struggle to have basic material to support them in times of crisis. Asylum seekers don’t get the opportunity to voice their problems. There are currently 68.5 million refugees and asylum seekers in need of help.


Solution

Our solution is a 'buy one give one' first aid kit that support asylum seekers and refugees. Our product comprises the basic items in a first aid kit.

What makes this product unique is that you buy one and donate one! By buying one of our products we are able to support families who have fewer medical items.

To validate the potential of this idea we have spoken to someone from National First Aid Kit who has given us feedback about our idea.
