The second wave of coronavirus has again grounded the country to a halt and added tremendous pressure on the health infrastructure. The surge of conversations around lack of hospital beds and oxygen supply has forced citizens to run helter-skelter seeking support.
Due to the strict lockdown in several areas, necessities such as groceries, medicines and transport to hospitals has also become an issue for everybody impacted.
Within minutes of its launch on Android Play Store, sNeighbour received over 100 registrations with 50 per cent posting about the help they can provide with medicines, cooked food, groceries and ride to vaccination centres.
Global software firms EPAM & ThoughtWorks came forward to join the cause and encouraged their employees to use the platform to provide and seek help as required.
As the situation improves, people will still need to exercise self-isolation and social distancing. sRide sNeighbour app is expected to provide ease of accessibility to essentials by forming social bubbles within the community and reducing the spread of coronavirus. In the long-term, sNeighbour will continue to serve as a platform to attract like-minded individuals who share common values and vision and form a community, help each other, follow and share interests, have fun and grow as human beings. As an extension of sRide, sharing the same purpose and objective, sNeighbour will continue to bring people together.
