MakeMyTrip foundation introduces Community Platform CoviRide

Share

In these tough times of pandemic, community networks have emerged as a lifeline as people stepped up to extend support, volunteer or offer services to communities they live in. MakeMyTrip foundation has launched CoviRide, an open, peer-to-peer community platform designed to help meet essential travel and medical assistance needs during the pandemic. This will help individuals, organizations and the larger community to seek and provide transport related assistance during this difficult time.

Available on mobile web and desktop <https://coviride.com/>, the community platform aims to solve one of the biggest challenges of finding transport options (intercity or intracity) including ambulance services for COVID-19 infected patients. Additionally, it helps the user locate a ride to a vaccination centre, drive through oxygen centres, to and from the hospital and for medical equipment transfer such as oxygen cylinder, concentrator, medicines, among others.

Updated real-time, the platform enables private vendors and organizations to reach out to users directly as soon as a transport-related query matches their service. Further, the ‘Offer a ride’ feature allows individuals to volunteer and offer a ride to anyone in need of any transport assistance. Currently, the platform lists transport leads and sources in New Delhi, Ghaziabad, Noida, Gurugram, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Agra and will be expanding reach to other cities shortly.

To help address medical equipment needs, MakeMyTrip foundation is procuring 300 Oxygen Concentrators and the initial set of Oxygen Concentrators have already been shared with Gurgaon Administration, Sir Ganga Ram City Hospital, Delhi; NGOs like Hemkunt Foundation and National Association for the Blind (NAB). To better support communities directly, the foundation is also collaborating with RWAs across Delhi-NCR to assist in setting up Covid-Care facilities at large residential areas by providing oxygen concentrators.

In parallel, MakeMyTrip Foundation is extending support to Gurugram administration through manpower deployment for contract tracing and data management services.
