In a move that mirrored the spirit of the #BenderaPutih movement, local developer house Terato Tech has come out with a web app called Kita Jaga Malaysia, which allows users to signal for help through the digital manner.
The site also allows users to search or mark the locations of food banks. Regardless of whether you want to signal for help or provide information for food banks in your neighbourhood, all you need to do is pin the location on the map and fill in the required details.
If the listing contains a phone number, users that want to respond to the call for help or find more information about the listed food banks can directly contact the person behind it. They can also open the location on Google Maps directly from Kita Jaga Malaysia or utilise its share option to spread the listing through their social media and other contacts.
At the moment, Kita Jaga Malaysia’s user interface is rather rudimentary, which is not exactly surprising given that the web app was just conceived last weekend according to Terato’s founder, Reza Razali. He also pointed out that the team is still looking for help to populate the web app with details of food banks.
Nevertheless, the main functionalities within Kita Jaga Malaysia works well enough for the web app to be operational. You can give the web app a go, through the link right here.
