Initiative by six foreigners in Malta – big group set up to help the elderly

Six foreign nationals resident in Malta have set up a group of 180 volunteers called Invisible Hands, with the aim of reaching out to the elderly and vulnerable persons within the community.

The group said in a statement that the elderly and vulnerable who need assistance, like having their shopping delivered to their door, or perhaps even being able to have a ‘distance’ chat,  should apply on the site. Those with no access to the internet can call on +356 2166 9169.

With the aim of avoiding abuse, the like of which has been seen to happen in recent days, with burglars posing as persons out to offer help, the group stated that both the elderly person and the volunteer will receive an automatic SMS when the shopping is delivered, in order to confirm each other’s identity.
