Malaysia-based application RepotLah is going above and beyond the usual as it now includes reports of smoking in public places.
Mobile application RepotLah announced on June 22 its collaboration with Selangor Bebas Asap Rokok (SELBAR), a non-governmental organization.
This partnership aims to take the app on another level by using the platform to lessen instances of smoking in public.
Imagine having access to report any issue you encounter in one app – that is RepotLah’s plan in the future to democratize the way people submit reports.founder and CEO of RepotLah, Keasavan Hari Krishnan.
RepotLah, which was founded last year, has been efficient in engaging the community to report non-emergency issues directly to the authorities so they can take immediate action.
Most of these reports include poor road conditions, traffic offenses caught on cam, and waste disposal concerns among others.
With the presence of RepotLah, we hope the Malaysian community can fully utilize this mobile app to help enforce this somking ban.Mohd Afiq Mohd Nor, Campaign Director of SELBAR and YDP of Ikram Health.
Back in 2019, smoking in public places have already been prohibited by the Ministry of Health where violators will be subject to disciplinary actions or even worse, imprisonment.
Furthermore, this collaboration is expected to promote a smoke-free environment and encourage a healthier environment in Malaysia.
Released on August 2021, the mobile app provides the community with a design mechanism that will allow direct communication between the community. RepotLah can be downloaded via Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
