Beirut, Lebanon: Drapp, the first online medical consultations app in Lebanon, today announced its participation to the من_قلبي_دعم_لبيروت # initiative launched by the USAID – Funded IM Capital.
As part of the initiative, Drapp will offer free online medical consultations to individuals and businesses who have been affected by the Beirut Port Blast of August, 4th, 2020.
This milestone will help Drapp on its mission to improve health services through digital services & technology.
“Beirut is our heart and we are extremely proud to be part of a great initiative to help heal our injured heart” says Hady Bsat, CEO at Drapp “With digital health, we bridge distances and save valuable time for both patients and doctors. Through this initiative, patients will get access to telemedicine with Drapp at no cost, while clinics and doctors who got impacted by the Beirut Port Blast will benefit from this initiative to help sustain their business and their mission.”
This news comes in the wake of an important rise in the number of online consultations on the platform, whether for medical or health related issues, due to the necessary measure for physical distancing. In addition to supporting people and SMEs, this initiative will further raise awareness and usage of telehealth services. This confirms global research studies stating that virtual health-care interactions will top 1 billion by year’s end
“The #من_قلبي_دعم_لبيروت initiative comes from the heart of IM Capital to the heart of our beloved Beirut”, says Nicolas Rouhana, General Manager at IM Capital. “We are excited to have Drapp as one of the participating portfolio startups in this relief initiative that aims at supporting families and businesses that got impacted by the Beirut Explosion.” He affirms that the initiative is expected to support more than 8000, sustain and create 200 jobs and keep 300 businesses alive.
