Our country India is home to an estimated 78 million homeless people. Longing for just the basic necessities of life to keep their families alive. We also have a number of generous donors wishing to help these people. The question is there is a large gap between thinking what the homeless and need and knowing what they need. This leads to a setup of voluntary organizations to help bridge this gap. This is both a blessing and a curse as since there are humans involved in a major part of these processes it leaves room to corruption, inefficiency etc. This solution helps in reducing the gap between the one who wants to help and the one who needs to help and facilitates interactions between the two, increase the reliability of the donations and much more to help the ones in need.
