The Somerset Foundation is a young non-profit focused on provided basic essentials to the world’s refugee population. A worthy and wonderful cause, the charities administrators knew a strong web presence was necessary for establishing their legitimacy with the governments for the areas they served and for processing the donations that keep their mission alive. With the majority of their funds centered on directly providing for refugees, the budget for a high-end website was limited at best. Aero was proud to work with Somerset and donate portions of our time toward making sure their web needs were met.

The site serves as a resource for visitors to learn about the refugee crisis in different parts of the world and as a call action for users to donate their time and financial resources. Aero enables social sharing for all major social media platforms to help spread the word.
