The Natalia Project Helps the Constant Threat Around Aid Workers

Human rights workers are under the constant threat of being abducted, imprisoned, assaulted or worse.

The Natalia Project is a personal GPS wristband that alerts people when an aid worker finds themselves in a life-threatening situation. The device can be activated by pressing a button or when it's forcibly removed from the wearer. The GPS wristband alerts local organizations that the wearer is affiliated with, the Civil Rights headquarters in Stockholm and everyone who signed up with their application through social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

With the invaluable work that human rights workers do on a regular basis, it's only appropriate that their lives are also given priority. This clever wristband will definitely provide aid workers around the world with the security they so desperately need.
