Sidra commented on LifesavHERs

Thank you! Yes, we agree; it is also suitable socio-economic conditions that IDPs are deprived of that puts them further at a disadvantage. All of the losses combined with not being able to begin life in a new place due to lack of opportunity or several other reasons, adds further psychological stress. We hope to generate income and inclusivity while also addressing our country's need for emergency care with the help of technology

In Pakistan, people belonging to different region not only have different languages but they also have different dialects. This has made communication a bit difficult in the rural areas, and I do think that your idea does have potential. We have been using pictorial representation for communication at some occasions and it does seem to work. It'll be great to see how your initiative spans out. Best of luck!

Hi Aziza Ismail this is a brilliant initiative, I wanted to inquire more about how does ESL function exactly, is the software a pictorial representation of the maternal journey or translates the language of the non-English speaker? Do you think it can be replicated in other languages/countries?
