FoodClique Support Initiative, a Non Governmental Organization in Nigeria striving to end widespread hunger in Nigeria launched a mobile app on World Food Day (16th of October 2015) to help volunteers and donors get more involved with the charity towards achieving a zero hunger score sheet in Nigeria.
According to Founder and CEO of the Non Profit Organisation Bolajoko Fadipe, He said ” We are very excited to announce the debut of this Hunger Fighting Mobile App and with this development, FoodClique Support Initiative becomes the first charity in Nigeria to use innovative technology offered by Incode-Nation to tackle a complex problem like hunger affecting over 805M people Worldwide.
The Mobile App gives volunteers access to register for volunteering opportunities, access to their social media pages and make donation with just a click of a button. It also gives volunteers access to real time updates using push technology to get information about upcoming events real time.
The app also features a regularly updated list of items required by FoodClique to serve as a guide to donors willing to donate food items. These food items collected will then be collated and donated to people struggling with hunger and food insecurity in Nigeria.
Anthony Ewone, PR at FoodClique opined that the novel mobile application reemphasizes the body’s commitment towards hunger alleviation. “Hunger is a serious, but not easily visible, social problem and this application provides us the opportunity to collaborate more within the mobile smartphone circle that currently projects huge potential. As technology plays a crucial role in the world today, we’re very optimistic hunger will lose its power soonest if we continue to map out innovative ideas to tackle it.
The app is currently available for download free on Google PlayStore with more OS options to roll out in future.
