HelpShare is an innovative online marketplace that aims to support refugees as they arrive in new locations. The platform operates on a sharing economy model, where locals can offer their resources to incoming refugees for free. HelpShare makes it easy for refugees to find the items they need by providing advanced search features that allow users to filter items by category, keyword, and location.
Ultimately, by working together with HelpShare, LN Webworks has made meaningful contributions to the global effort to support refugees and promote social justice
