Tragically, a child loses his life after choking on food.
In India, we lose 17 lives a minute to medical emergencies.
Doctors say 75% could have been saved if the first response was available at the earliest until professional help arrives.
alert VoICE (Volunteer In Case Of Emergency) is a first of its kind initiative in India to bring about a revolution in the way emergency care gets delivered in our society. Driven by community participation and enabled by mobile technology, it will bridge the much-needed gap between the occurrence of an emergency and the arrival of professional help, whether on the road, home, workplace, or public places.
