The Humanitarian Kiosk (H.Kiosk) application provides a range of up-to-the-minute humanitarian related information from emergencies around the world.
The application has multiple independant kiosks which reflect locations where UN-OCHA operates or there is an ongoing international humanitarian emergency.
Once installed, you simply select the kiosks that you are interested in and they will be automatically downloaded and synchronized to your mobile device.
Downloading the files enables offline abilities which is extremely important as we know that most responders do not have regular, consistent internet connection.
The settings of the application help you to know how much data is being used on your device, to control how data is downloaded (by WiFi only is default), and to control the maximum file size of documents downloaded.
Other than the files downloaded for the HKiosk, the application does not access, use or store any personal information from your device.

Ratings and Reviews
Great information resource on humanitarian issues
This is a great app for anyone interested in humanitarian affairs and emergency relief operations. The fact that UN country offices add new documents all the time means is always up to date! Highly recommended.
Essential service to humanitarian workers!
Long needed service… amazing to have access to the facts from humanitarian operations on the ground in all major ongoing crises, clearly more countries will share information as this develops. Great initiative by UN OCHA.
Great concept, needs a fix
Great concept, lots of up to date information for practitioners. However, every time I click on something, the app crashes. Looking forward to a fix! Soon please!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
