As an engineer, bakup is an opportunity for me to have a positive impact on the world.
When I arrived in France, as an Italian expatriate, I experienced several difficulties during my consultations with French-speaking doctors.
Bakup allows me to help and reassure expatriates who are far from home.
During a stay in Istanbul with my family, we needed to consult a doctor. However, few people spoke a language other than Turkish, and even with the internet, we had trouble.
Every day, I contact multilingual health professionals around the world so that, thanks to Bakup, travelers who feel the need to consult abroad in their native language can do so with ease and enjoy their stay with peace of mind.
During a trip abroad my cousin started having stomach pains, since she didn't know any doctors who spoke her language, she decided to wait and see if the pain would pass.
Unfortunately she did not know that she had appendicitis which turned into peritonitis.
She was hospitalized and she is doing well today.
However her experience at the hospital was very hard.
She keeps telling me that if she could have seen a doctor who spoke French she would have gone as soon as the first symptoms appeared.
Whether it was during my career as a high level athlete or when I was on vacation to solve my sister's neuralgia, it always been very difficult to find a health professional who spoke my language when I was abroad.
For this reason, we decided to create Bakup, in order to simplify the process of care for travelers and allow them to continue their stay in peace.
After moving to Brazil in 2011, I was injured during a match and despite receiving good care at the hospital I was not able to understand the instructions for my rehabilitation.
If I had Bakup on my phone, I wouldn't have had any language problems and I wouldn't have lost the use of my finger.
WE, HUMANITY, HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TRAVELLERS
We explore. Driven by our desire for discovery, we turn our gaze outward. An exterior, often uncertain, and full of questions.
We are all travellers Whether these trips take us to neighbouring countries, to the other side of the world, or to be pampered in a vacation club, the same essential need unites us all: to be able to return home, satisfied with our trip and in good health.
And because today more than ever, humanity must be synonymous with mutual aid, compassion, and sharing in all its forms, traveling and meeting others has never been so essential.
HEALTH IS THE
CORNERSTONE OF EVERYONE DEVELOPMENT
At Bakup, we believe that health is the cornerstone of everyone's development. Its management must be done with the same serenity on foreign soil as in one’s own country.
This is why at Bakup. We accompany all travelers, young and old, improvised or repeat travelers who understand that the trip is more important than the destination. Despite the uncertainty that some trips may involve, they will never be alone.
