An online portal that provides the right aid and resources to the right people at the right time when disaster strikes.
With a belief that those who serve people in need shouldn't have to sacrifice on the tools they use, Aidmatrix Foundation came up with CDRN. It's an online portal that helps bring people together with the use of applications for supply-chain management, volunteer management and fund raising. People can enter their needs, donations, products or supplies into the CDRN system, which is in turn accessed by a nationwide network of relief agencies, corporates, state Governments, federations, and PSUs. It allows donors to provide discounted pricing offers as well as donations directly to various relief agencies by viewing needs posted on the system.
Who all benefit?
NGOs benefit as they can spend less time on paper work and more on relief work. They can post their needs directly into the CDRN system, share information with other agencies and NGOs. This allows them to react quickly when disaster strikes.
Private sector companies can become members of CDRN and offer their donations. Since everything's posted on this site, private companies can immediately find out when relief support is needed and react as required.
