With many human rights workers going missing and nothing being done about it, one company is trying to make a difference.

The Natalia Project is an idea born out of the abduction and murder of Natalya Estemirova – an award-winning human rights worker who was taken from her home in Chechnya.

Aid workers can face constant danger depending on what part of the world they're in, and when they go missing, it doesn't always make the news. The Natalia project is an attempt to bring more cases of aid workers in distress to the attention of global media and the general public.

It's a GPS bracelet that sends out a distress signal when an aid worker finds them self at risk while carrying out humanitarian work. The company behind the bracelet will then validate the signal, take appropriate action and keep you updated about the situation as it progresses.
