Infostretch has created a software platform that connects volunteers and support partners with those in need

To date, INDIASHIELD has facilitated over 1,500 hospital bed reservations, over 3,000 ambulance reservations and provided support to hospitals and organizations in need of COVID-related resources across India.
INDIASHIELD works with citizens of 150 cities and has over 100 partners in its alliance, working together to provide support and assistance to those seeking help across India. Infostretch has created a software platform that connects volunteers and support partners with those in need.
INDIASHIELD has now taken on 114,000 requests for help, including 74,000 in the past two months, as India treated the Delta variant of the virus.
