What we need help with

The first version of CoronaCombat was created as a proof of concept. We created this version in 9 days using our internal funds and launched it on April 10th. Since it's launch, the game has reached 1000 people with no marketing budget. The game is available for free at www.coronacombat.gamingfordev.com. CoronaCombat was translated into Urdu through a grant provided by American Pakistani Foundation. CoronaCombat has received immense attention since its launch, including a shout out by Chelsea Clinton on Twitter, as well as media coverage by ABC News in the United States. We are now looking for partner organizations who can help us expand CoronaCombat in 5 key phases: 1. Updating game content and translations in 3 additional languages (including Spanish and French) 2. Social media marketing to reach 10,000 downloads. 3. Enhancement of game design to include simulations of hygiene habits, social distancing and guidance for taking care of COVID19 patients. 4. Incorporation of real-life resources such as information on nearest testing facility and contact tracing. 5. Identifying partner organizations that can expand the outreach of CoronaCombat
