Two Harvard freshmen, Avi Schiffmann and Marco Burstein, spent three sleepless nights designed a website from scratch for Ukrainian. Drawing upon their web developing skills and social media base, the two created a streamlined process where refugees could type in the nearest city and find immediate housing results. The website, translated into dozens of languages, has over 7,000 listings all across Europe. Schiffman and Burstein were struck by how many people, from user experience testers, cyber security experts, translators, and the thousands of people offering their homes, that made the effort possible. "We're really blown away by the response, not just for refugees, but from everyone who is trying to help in this situation," said Burstein.
