Aim of this project is to use technology to assist Rohingya refugees living in South East Asia during the COVID-19 crisis. More specifically we will use knowledge acquired from previous research and close collaboration with community experts, local NGOs and members of the Rohingya refugee community to design, develop, and deploy a mobile phone app.

Games are an immersive medium which the project will use to engage code-citizens and deliver an intervention on security matters. Additionally, the process of designing serious games itself elicits the nature of the practice and engages participants in defining how to intervene and act effectively.

Currently, only 40% of people who could benefit from Hearing Aids (HAs) have them, and most people who have HA devices don't use them often enough. There is social stigma around using visible HAs ('fear of looking old'), they require a lot of conscious effort to concentrate on different sounds and speakers, and only limited use is made of speech enhancement - making the spoken words (which are often the most important aspect of hearing to people) easier to distinguish. It is not enough just to make everything louder!
