Inspiration

We were inspired by the success story that is findthemasks.com, which contains thousands of drop-off points for (Personal Protective Equipment) PPE globally.

What it does

We bring this website and its backend to Switzerland, allowing us to collect needs from medical personnel and hospitals, format the data and compile on the site, so that donors know how, when, where to donate they PPE.

How we built it

We integrated the global team and created a Swiss frontend and backend

Challenges we ran into

  • Understanding how the data is processed

  • Getting in touch with hospitals

  • Managing the language barrier

Accomplishments that we're proud of
