Tell us about your idea

First Aid Tablet is a humanitarian aid initiative, developing digital solutions and a service to inform, prepare, and adapt the general public for the unforeseeable situations which pandemics, climate-change and

human-conflicts present.

Fully loaded with solutions, rugged digital tablets and solar chargers will be donated and/or dropped off

through humanitarian aid initiatives to the recipients cut off from support.

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

All can remain as it has relevance to this initiative

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

After attending various humanitarian aid summits, reoccurring issues raised by speakers and moderators regarding the lack of effective long-lasting solutions by humanitarian aid agencies for people caught in crisis zones proved to be of great concern.

With this in mind, the process of applying an innovative approach to resolve this critical problem gave way to a powerful solution.

The concept FAT came to mind. Designed by experts an app loaded onto a digital tablet with life saving solutions and education developed to assist people caught in crisis zones.

Thank you for posting your idea to the Challenge, Michael Abboud ! I appreciate how your idea takes into account the populations who may not have access to a stable network due to ongoing crises.

I am curious to hear a little more about how the content for the First Aid Tablets is curated. What are the backgrounds of some of the experts this content? I wonder if there might be an opportunity for co-creation with students, teachers and parents?
