With a belief that those who serve people in need shouldn't have to sacrifice on the tools they use, Aidmatrix Foundation came up with CDRN. It's an online portal that helps bring people together with the use of applications for supply-chain management, volunteer management and fund raising. People can enter their needs, donations, products or supplies into the CDRN system, which is in turn accessed by a nationwide network of relief agencies, corporates, state Governments, federations, and PSUs. It allows donors to provide discounted pricing offers as well as donations directly to various relief agencies by viewing needs posted on the system.

Who all benefit?

NGOs benefit as they can spend less time on paper work and more on relief work. They can post their needs directly into the CDRN system, share information with other agencies and NGOs. This allows them to react quickly when disaster strikes.

Private sector companies can become members of CDRN and offer their donations. Since everything's posted on this site, private companies can immediately find out when relief support is needed and react as required.

Besides private companies, CDRN also identifies suppliers and manufacturers who can provide relief items and goods at discounted prices. Since the portal already lists down the relief requirements coming from various parts of the country, it helps targeting the right suppliers for the right kinds of equipment

The Results

More than 4600 product suppliers and corporates have registered on the CDRN system to offer their services and donations for relief agencies. Anybody can go to the portal at any point of time and view the requirements coming from disaster struck areas across the country. Members can login and volunteer to help victims, donate, etc. A Google Map shows the needs, offers, and volunteers needed across various parts of the country. Moreover, users can post directly from disaster struck areas to provide actual, onsite state of affairs. A few notable achievements of this network are as follows:

Leh Flash Flood, August 2010: CDRN emergency unit responded quickly with a rapid assessment for the needs and organized aid and relief materials offline. With the help of corporate partners they distributed blankets, solar lamps, cooking oil, at various relief camps that were created in the affected area.

This need was met through CDRN system within 24 hours and Britannia donated 45,806 packets of biscuits, which were distributed to 10,000 families in the affected areas.

Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka Floods, October 2009: Emergency needs from voluntary relief agencies like Help Age India, RRHEDS, Commitment, BIRDS and Jyoti Welfare Society were immediately posted and the needs were matched within 24–48 hours. 4.75 Lakh water purification tablets were donated by Hind Pharma and 64,000 Aquatabs water purification tablets were again donated by Medentech. 350 kgs of biscuits were provide to Jyothi Welfare Society donated by Mashika Agro Tech.
