Amid the current outbreak, people are advised to stay at home. But some elderly people are isolated with no one to ask for help or talk to.
What it does
This system will connect elderly people to any volunteer with a phone call.
Give a call to +18557725566 to connect to volunteers OR register as a volunteer at http://chinwag.xyz/
We only support phone number from New Zealand, USA, and Malaysia only for now.
