The One Million Masks initiative was started by the team at NewsCred. It started as a project led by Shafqat Islam (the CEO) to help a couple of doctors and nurses, but snowballed into a larger movement thanks to the support of so many startups, investors and companies. We have a team of NewsCred employees and friends who now volunteer on this project.
Initially, we were procuring masks from China, importing, and then manually supplying masks to doctors. But as we scaled, we decided to use Shopify to automate the ordering process. And then automated the rest of the supply chain. Thanks to the folks at Ware2Go, a UPS company for all their help and support to make next day delivery possible.
