Giving is a fundamentally social act, and research shows that spending money on others actually makes us happier than spending it on ourselves.

In honor of Refugee Week, Phone Credit for Refugees and Displaced People (PCRDP) would like to reflect on this year’s theme of “Different Pasts, Shared Future.” The basic human needs of Connection and the necessity of Information are relevant to refugees and others alike. This post describes the service PCRDP provides to people around the world. For more information about Refugee Week, please visit refugeeweek.org.uk. Thank you.
