I tested COVID-19 Positive on Friday, 10 July 2020. The very next day, Saturday, 11 July 2020 I had to be admitted to the Shifa Hospital, Bangalore. Once I was admitted and started reflecting on many things an idea struck my mind.
Create a website where all information regarding Free Oxygen Cylinders, Free Medical Consultation, Ambulance Services, Burial Services, Government Notification, etc will be published.
The idea was shared in the WhatsApp group – Emergency Response Team (Bangalore). The idea was liked by a few members and friends of mine in the group and the next day, Sunday, 12 July 2020 the domain www.covidhelplinebangalore.com was registered, and immediately a team was created for content sourcing, content curation, design and development of the website.
In just 5 Days, www.covidhelplinebangalore.com was set up and we went live on Friday, 17 July 2020
It’s a team effort involving me, my friends, CIGMA Staff, and a team of concerned individuals and IT Professionals who belong to different NGOs and teams in Bangalore.
Let’s remember that we should do what we can, from where we are and with what we have.
