Bees (by Chua Ming Jin)

Bees is a tool that can be used to share important information with people nearby quickly, warning them on dangers or requesting for help from the surrounding community.
Influenced by the rising crime rate in KL, Chua drew inspiration from the little flying insects that send out signals to other bees for help.

Quickcauses is a transparent crowd-funding platform that allows the project organiser to manage public contributions efficiently. Chew hopes to raise awareness on organisers’ accountability when handling public donations.
