Internet for refugees

Providing Internet to refugees is a great idea. Refugees are men, women and even children who were forced to leave their country because of the war (like we could have to do some day). They abandoned all their belongings at home, and now they can't continue their journey because we don't let them get in Europe. They have already ran out of food and water and they have no choice but to stay at refugee camps under awful conditions and surviving thanks to initiatives like this one.

At first, we may think this is an stupid idea or just a marketing tactic. However, we must consider that these people are totally isolated and that they have no way to keep up with the news or to keep in touch with their families. Their families know that they once left, but now they have no way to know whether they are alive or not. Therefore, if they had Internet, they could contact them, because, unless the situation gets better, they won't be able to come back.

To sum up, I think Internet would be a great tool for refugees, since they would be able to keep in touch with their families and they could be aware of their current situation thanks to the news.
