Mayank Bhangadiahas announced the launch of CloseAPP.
- It is a location-based social networking platform that helps users discover and connect with people located in their vicinity at any given time.
“During my personal Covid crisis, I realised that current social networks aren’t as efficient in connecting help seekers with volunteers within one’s neighbourhood, nearby societies or geo-location. Also, while some posts get so viral that the useful resources are exhausted by the time they reach the masses, many others hardly get. Little did I know that someone 3 kms away from my house succumbed to Covid for lack of oxygen. I could have arranged it for him, had I known this in time,” says Bhangadia who, along with his family, has recently recovered from Covid.
“During this acute crisis, no one is a stranger. Everyone needs help and anyone can help others. I, hence, felt a dire need to create an open, decentralised platform to help people connect hyper locally with one another and get immediate help,” adds the ROPOSO founder, who is currently building an active community of volunteers and alongside building a robust Technology Team.
“It’s encouraging to see so many help seekers and volunteers from across the nation joining the app. I urge everyone to join this platform to seek help or to extend a helping hand to those in need. Together, we can all help save lives,” adds Bhangadia.
