As one of the best platforms for getting news updates, voice concerns and spark discussions with others, Twitter is a huge part of Doctors of the World's 'Journey of a Refugee.'

The interactive web map tracks use of #RefugeesWelcome conversations in real-time from across the world, as well as the charts routes that are used to provide aid every day. As Doctors of the World notes, "We used to get a deluge of negative comments whenever we spoke about our work helping refugees in Calais and the Mediterranean but recently we’ve been inundated with messages of support, offers of practical help and cash donations."

This Twitter-connected map #RefugeesWelcome further fuels donations, providing aid to Syrian refugees, survivors of war and people in need of medical care from clinics and hospitals.
