Elsewhere: Humanitarian internet game

by

The British Red Cross has come up with a clever way to promote humanitarian efforts in war torn northern Uganda: an online treasure hunt-style strategy game called Traces of Hope. From the Web site:

Vicious war in Northern Uganda has destroyed Joseph’s home and torn his family apart. He has one goal, to find out from the Red Cross if his mother is alive or dead.

Now he has arrived in the dangerous refugee camp they call Hopetown, he has 24 hours to track down the Red Cross messenger and he needs you to be his guide.

He has a satellite phone, you have the web – together you’ll make a great team. Time is running out; guide Joseph through sickness, fire and violence as together you follow his traces of hope.
