Most of us hope that the infringement of privacy and security that is a home invasion will never occur in the comfort of our own homes. Unfortunately for Stephany-Louise van Heerden, the nightmare became a reality. Stephany and her mom were the only ones at home when they came face-to-face with someone trying to break into their house.
“My mom woke up to someone shining a torch through her bedroom window. My dad was not at home and so I was really scared.”
Stephany opened the newly installed Namola app on her phone and at the push of a button, requested assistance. Within seconds, Stephany received a call from a Namola Response Agent, who put her at ease that help was on the way.
“The Agent was wonderful and followed up with me right up until the police arrived.”
Stephany is one of 230,000 South Africans who have downloaded Namola, the crime response app that helps users #GetHelpFast in emergencies.
“Thank you for the great service, Namola. I can’t believe how fast the police were able to get to me.”
Namola encourages users to test the app to ensure that they are ready to use it in an emergency.
