Messiah as the name suggests was developed as a lifesaving application at Peshawar Civic Hackathon last year and won the second place at the event. The team behind the app has come a long way from programming the prototype at the 2.5 days hackathon to releasing it on the market and finally got selected for attending Oasis 500 Bootcamp in Amman this year. Ebtihaj (Idea Lead) and his teammates Zahid, Mubassir and Bilal will represent Pakistan at the largest tech initiative in the Middle East.
Messiah is a one click emergency application to let your loved ones know about your accident or any other emergency as quickly as possible. As soon as you give a tap on the application screen, your location is send to your specified contacts through a text message to inform them of your distress immediately. Most important feature of all is that it can detect an accident and notify select contacts automatically. This brilliant application was launched in partnership with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Provincial Disaster Management Authority and KP IT Board.
It was no wonder that Messiah got selected for the Oasis500 Bootcamp; they deserved it afterall.
