About the solution
“Growing up with friends who later became depressed due to family and life issues that could lead to suicide triggered the need to try and help many more people. I took the initiative to develop this app due to my philanthropic nature,” Karim said.
His solution app is dubbed ‘Masiri’ and it allows users to share what they are going through and get help.
“I realised that most people are trapped in depression without anyone to open up to about their troubles and was motivated to come up with a platform which could offer free depression services”, Karim said. “Despite the fact that this application will be of importance to the depressed, those that have gone through similar problems and emerged victors will be in a position to share their testimonies and thus help those undergoing depression,” he explains.
In order to make the app work, Karim faced the challenge of where to find professional counsellors who could help with depression.
“I had to go out of my way to source for counsellors. It is through them that many will be helped and will have a professional view towards it unlike being in a position where the depressed people are advised by random people or friends,” he explains.
The app Masiri is free and is available on Google Play and has received several positive comments from its users.
