SOSmap is a map application that helps connect to locations where people are facing difficulties during the Covid epidemic, so that they have timely material support and medical services. The SOSmap relief map was born right in the days of social distancing in Ho Chi Minh City, greatly contributing to the connection between donors and recipients, not only in Ho Chi Minh City but also in all provinces and cities across the country.
1. About SOSmap
SOSmap was born from minimizing the difficulties of people during the Covid season, especially in the hot spot of Ho Chi Minh City, where there are many people in lockdown areas, provincial people are losing their jobs without necessities to use. Founder Pham Thanh Vi is only 32 years old, used to drive relief trucks to people by himself, thanks to SOSmap charity organizations, donors can quickly connect to points in need of relief, people who are in need of necessities during the epidemic season. The map application was first deployed in the epicenter of Ho Chi Minh City but may be applied across the country in the near future if needed.

SOSmap, Covid relief map necessities
Although SOSmap has just been launched and is both practical and adjusted, it is actively contributing to connecting donors and receivers across the city. The map displays ferry signs with information about people in need such as names, addresses, phone numbers, current circumstances as well as good reasons for needing assistance. Charity organizations will base on the map to go to the place, send it to the recipient. After the relief is complete, SOSmap will update the status “Supported” (green mark) to avoid duplication. And the places marked in orange are strong places donors want to support the people.
