Karuna

A community solution to ensure reliable resource allocation in the fight against COVID-19

 

Where people help each other

 

An aggregate app for crowdsourcing and resource allocation

To fight against the recent outbreak of covid19 cases and the lack of resources in India, we are launching a decentralized web app, Karuna, for crowdsourcing information and providing real time updates of beds, oxygen and hospital supplies in India.

This is a volunteer effort powered by the PathCheck foundation.

Optimized Resource Allocation Network

 

For the hospitals and the general population who want a decentralized platform to know where resources are allocated, to reach out to other hospitals and administration and to share information about hospital beds, oxygen, food and other resources, the PathCheck India Karuna system is a web platform that will allow for constructive interaction between hospital administration, doctors and the population while remaining easy to use for all parties.
