Graphic representing Nidaa

Khartoum, Sudan

"Just three days after the war started, Sudanese market intelligence firm DataQ launched a platform called Nidaa (meaning “call for help” in Arabic). It allows people in distress to post their requirements — from money and groceries to medical services and a ride to safety — so volunteers can reach out to them."

"Nidaa helped Noha Abdalla, a 35-year-old software engineer, evacuate with her family of nine to Egypt, and then to the U.S. “I was introduced to Nidaa by a nonprofit organization I was volunteering for,” she told Rest of World from Virginia, where she currently lives. “I listed my request [on Nidaa] and was able to get all the help and resources we needed during that difficult time, including medical attention to my ailing parent.”" - Damilare Dosunmu
