Cisco funded the first two Refugee First Response Center prototypes, units to provide ‘healthcare in a box’ that will enable access to the internet, remote translation services, and medical care for refugees. Cisco employees, in partnership with NetHope, installed more than 80 Meraki-based Wi-Fi hotspots across Greece, reaching over 600,000 refugees.
Cisco committed to continuing to provide financial and in-kind services in support of the refugee crisis. Since September 2015, Cisco has provided over $4 million through employee giving, and Cisco Foundation matches and grants, product donations, and in-kind support. The company also provided $350,000 in funding to Mercy Corps to support development and expansion of Refugee.Info.
