Sagoon launches ‘Help Nepal’ online tool for Nepal earthquake relief

by April 30, 2015 0 comments

In the aftermath of the devastating earthquake to hit Nepal on Saturday, which resulted in the death of 3,300 Nepalese citizens, Sagoon has set up an online tool, ‘Help Nepal’ to aid the ongoing relief efforts being carried out in the worst affected areas.

Help Nepal is a standalone online application offering built to deliver vital information to everyone affected by the earthquake one way or another. Users can publish information detailing their current situation, safety and any other important issues.

The purpose of this tool is to provide whereabouts of users and their family and friends, informing each other of their safety. The tool is also made for the sprawling Nepali community across the globe, and the stranded tourists, unable to reach out to their family and friends.

Govinda Giri, Founder, has initiated a fund raiser in America. The money generated from the fund raising will be helpful in providing first aid medical assistance, food packages and temporary shelters.

As of now, approximately $50,000(INR 31, 00,000) have been raised, in coordination with the America-Nepal Helping Society (non-profit organisation). Sagoon has its own volunteers working on the ground.

Sagoon is also providing a separate space where news from the ground will be circulated around the clock. This space is called the Newsroom. Users can ask and give any information about the relief efforts in messages, photos and videos about the ongoing situation from the most hit areas.

Sagoon is a social platform, located in Washington, DC and New Delhi, which makes easy-to-use multiple applications in one go. Our mission is simple: to transform negative social behaviour.
