During disaster the accurate real-time information flow among victims, volunteers, disaster relief agencies is most critical for effective relief efforts. The information should include the location, details of the victims, their needs and their current status for effective action. Often this information is delayed, incomplete and inaccurate. Also there is no effective way to get quick summaries across various regions to plan and organize large scale relief operations.
Amrita Kripa solves the above issues through a crowd sourced mobile and web applications. The victims can request for rescue, medical help, supplies and services. Similarly the volunteers can post the supplies and service offerings. Each request is Geo tagged and time stamped and are transmitted in real time. The requests are summarized by location in real-time to enable large scale relief planning. The victims can change the status of their request to indicate the progress of the relief.
