Have You Joined The Helping Gozo Facebook Group?
Aimed at helping and supporting the elderly and others who might not be able to help themselves at this difficult time, the Helping Gozo Facebook group is growing daily. If you have a request, perhaps to pick up a prescription, do a little shopping or run an errand, your daily needs can be met by an able bodied and willing member of the community.
Using the group is easy. If you need help, you simply post your request including what it is you need and when you need it by and one of the amazing volunteers will answer if they can help either on the posts thread or via private message.
For those who are not online, a postcard system is doing the rounds.We teamed up with HUSH in Victoria who kindly printed a 5000 strong run of our postcards to pop through neighbours doors. We have some amazing volunteers in every town over Gozo who have taken it upon themselves to share these cards out with their communities. Thanks to all who volunteered and thanks to Andy, our partner in crime who is administering the group.
It is both comforting and inspiring to know that our community pulls together when times are tough.
