I posted about the “Najat” app back in January and it was finally launched today. The app was launched by Alfa as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility strategy and is aimed at helping the Lebanese Red Cross locate people who call them for emergencies and is called “Najat” after Najat Waked, a loving mother who passed away few days ago on her way to the hospital as her family wasn’t able to guide the ambulance driver properly to their house. Najat could have been saved if she had made it 3 minutes earlier to the hospital.
Once you download the app, you are required to register your address (two addresses at the most) along with two phone numbers in addition to his personal number. This will help the Lebanese Red Cross Central Operations room to locate the address easily when receiving a call on its hotline 140. Moreover, all the Red Cross ambulances were supposedly equipped on an earlier stage with free navigation systems and 3G enabled tablets.
