5 Nov Maties brothers develop mobile solution to aid in the fight against Ebola
Two brothers and Stellenbosch University (SU) graduates and engineers, Malan and Philip Joubert , have developed a mobile solution to assist in the fight against Ebola. The app is currently being used by the non-profit organisation More Than Me in Monrovia, Liberia. The Malan brothers recently moved to Silicon Valley in the USA to expand their tech start-up Journey Apps. While in the USA they became aware of the Ebola virus’s massive global impact and as the crisis escalated they realised that even in the midst of the technology giants of Silicon Valley, a South African startup could do something significant in the fight against the deadly disease.
