MeshPoint was born during the Syrian refugee crisis when thousands of refugees were passing through Eastern Croatia. Transit camps were in need of reliable Internet hotspots that are quick to set up and easy to manage. We decided to help. Our wish was to enable refugees to get in touch with their loved ones as well as to find and acquire much needed information and to help aid workers, response teams and volunteers with coordinating their actions and managing the crisis situation.
We are still leading the effort to provide Internet and networking to refugees and aid workers in two reception centres for asylum-seekers and refugees in Croatia, and our prototypes are built and deployed in order to provide networking infrastructure throughout this humanitarian crisis.

We thank our partners for collaboration and support
In collaboration with Croatian Red Cross and International Organisation for Migration we have employed 2 MeshPoint devices in asylum-seeker centers in Kutina, Croatia and Zagreb, Croatia.
Thanks to the support of the city of Osijek, Croatia we are also conducting a pilot in which we employed 12 MeshPoint devices to cover one whole block thus creating a network infrastructure for the whole neighbourhood and providing its inhabitants access to Internet.
