Short description

Provide comfort to isolated patients all over the world. Tinder for comfort.

Description

We’d like to create an app called Comfort. Many COVID victims are lonely and lack emotional support in their predicament. Our idea is to create a video platform where people can log in and get access to isolated individuals away from their loved ones. You could call it ‘Tinder for social support’.
Hospitals and care homes will have iPads that they can avail to patients safely. People who want to support COVID victims would mention their preferred language(s). They would then get random profiles who are on the platform and join a live video feed where they can talk to them and comfort them. This would be good for the mental health of both sides. Social support has also been shown to improve the prognosis and improve immunity.
We’d like to have the beta out 4-6 weeks after receiving funding.
