Refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and other countries in the Middle East and Africa who are in transit have an urgent and ongoing need for information about the circumstances affecting their immediate wellbeing and protection, and to enable them to make informed choices for their futures.

Internews’ Mediterranean Refugee Response began in Lesvos, Greece in September, 2015 with the goal of improving the quality of timely and actionable information reaching refugees in order to reduce their vulnerability and improve protection outcomes. 

Internews’ projects in the Mediterranean disseminate a range of information both online and offline – the daily news and information service, News That Moves, is available on a website, dedicated Facebook pages, and apps, all optimized for mobile phones, and can also be downloaded and printed for dissemination on flyers and noticeboards or used as the basis for audio messaging. Internews staff work closely with other humanitarian organizations to produce additional offline information and communication materials.
