BridgeAid is a mobile application that connects individuals who are eager to help with the NGOs that are at the forefront of serving the most vulnerable people in the local communities.
The platform is a centralized program storing information on all local, registered NGOs that provide crucial services to the most vulnerable during times of crises.
Users of the platform can find the nearest NGOs to them, their respective locations, contact details and needs, and in just one click are redirected to each of the non-profits' donation page. A simple yet very effective way to facilitate and make the help more accessible.
Users can filter the non-profits not only by location, but also by services they offer.
BridgeAid is available in all countries on the App Store and on Google Play.
You can find all of the information about non-profits in Beirut, Lebanon and Boston, USA.
Stay tuned for extra features and expansion to new locations.

The BridgeAid platform was built in April 2020 as a response to the COVID19 crisis.
The global ongoing pandemic of COVID-19: the virus that paralyzed the whole world. We all found ourselves home, distanced from everyone and anyone, wanting to help, needing help, but mostly frustrated by the lack of power and inability to reach out facing the situation.
Seven people from different cultures and background participated to the MIT: COVID19 Beat the Pandemic Challenge aiming to find solutions to international problems faced by less fortunate communities due to the COVID19 outbreak.
Chloe Avedissian (Beirut, Lebanon)
Thea Badaro (London, United Kingdom)
Sophie Chapelle (Boston, United States)
Hanhan J. Li (New York, United States)
Yasmina Richa (Montréal, Canada)
Diego Rodriguez (Maracaibo, Venezuela)
Victor Perez Munoz (Barcelona, Spain)
Together, the team conceived the platform BridgeAid. They won the Challenge and continued with the project and implemented the app on the market in June 2020 launching it with NGOs from Boston, USA.
They then continued expanding it adding non-profits from Beirut, Lebanon - and are currently working to expand it, and adding extra-features for a better user experience.
