Could not sit and sulk. Wanted to use my skill to be make an impact. In my home country (India), so many people (including elderly) still come out to buy groceries. including my relatives. they cannot buy in bulk, simply because they cant carry. They dont have delivery. So in an apartment if there 10 houses, one from each house are coming out. i was trying to minimize that. Recovered patients or any volunteering group can collect & consolidate these supply requests. Go and purchase them and deliver to the entire apartment in one shot. This app can be used at apartment scale, a street scale or a region or city scale.

What it does

Collects request for supplies - medical, groceries, sanitary material etc.
