COVID-19 Support By Shuchismita Das
With entire country reeling under second wave of COVID-19, we need all help we can get
For Uttar Pradesh-based Shuchismita Das, the virus hit her nation. When her near and dear ones were stricken by the virus, she spent a lot of time searching for hospitals and beds in the city but found the situation dire and alarming. Luckily, her knowns could recover from home.
Using @site 123 Shuchismita designed a no-code platform grnoidaresources.com in just two hours on April 27 and launched it the same afternoon. In the first hours, the website saw 3K viewers.
Grnoidaresources.com caters to different needs — sources for oxygen, quarantine, Remdesivir, ambulances, meal services, blook banks, and more. You can find leads from the different categories available on the website.
Shuchismita worked on her own and tried her best to curate all the data available. When you look at the number of cases, there is so much work more to be done. The infrastructure is crumbling, there are so many people that need help, and we want to also help the government tackle this. We cannot just sleep knowing this.
The self-taught developer is open to helping anyone replicate the same in their own city. Apart from teaching people how to do it, they can also provide them with the same template so that things get moving quickly.
“The need of the hour is to empower communities to come up with their own solutions because different cities have different problems and localised solutions are the need of the hour. We cannot scale externally now because we are busy with Greater Noida. We have organised and also recorded a webinar on how others can replicate the same model,” she says.
Shuchismita explains, “It’s a progressive website, which means you don’t have to download anything. You can load it from your browser on your smartphone or on a computer. You can even pin it to your home screen. In essence, you don’t have to give us any of your data,” she says.
