Italian Caritas with support from the US embassy Italy has launched MigrAdvisor, a smarthouse app allowing migrants to identify the nearest help centers, police stations, post offices, embassies and consular officers and other relevant services thanks to geolocalization. The app can be used in English, French, Arabic and Italian.
"It is a digital tool supporting Caritas' humanitarian aims and operating for the positive management of the migration phenomenon," said Gloria Berbena, Minister Counselor for Public Affairs at the US embassy in Rome. The app acts as a "bridge between migrant and host country and creates the conditions for introducing new arrivals into reception channels, reducing the risk of social exclusion and terrorism," she added. This is the basis for "positive integration in the country".
