Inspiration

On social networks, people invited eldery or frail people to hang red clothes on their window to show they need help. The app is allowing people who need help to "wave a red flag" and get help.

What it does

It connects people who need help with neighbors ready to help.  Sick people with COVID-19 or any other disease, or elderly people, can request help for food or other essentials delivery.  Healthier and younger volunteers can provide this help.

How I built it

It is based on firebase and Angular 9.

Challenges I ran into

  • FInding free services for geocoding and maps

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Doing it all by myself, in just 3 weeks, on technologies I didn't really know.

What I learned

Angular (ok, I had some basics), Firebase

What's next for Red Flag

  • Allow to post requests for relatives or friends who don't have access to technology
  • Find volunteers in your area
  • much, much more
