Liken / Application


In many small places, people cannot get enough treatment. Once suffering from serious diseases like cancers, they have to go to big cities to see a doctor. Medical fee, renting a house or staying in hospital cost highly, driving them to eat fast and cheap food which do not suit their tastes and even be harmful. And the unfamiliar environment depress them.
Liken is an application to let residents or restaurants near the hospital rent their kitchens to patients and relatives when they do not use their kitchens. The kitchen rental is low for a short cooking time. So patients cost less, eat well and receive warmth and help from strangers.
