In the Italian town of Naples, volunteers send shopping for people who struggle to perform it themselves.
The local authority provides the helper’s concessions like letting them bypass lines at pharmacies and supermarkets so that they can receive deliveries to people who want it as rapidly as possible.
“Their demands are critical,” said one girl purchasing.
“It is hard for everybody, but let’s attempt to take action for people who want it,” another girl added.
From the Russian capital Moscow there is no mandatory confinement as yet, though individuals are being invited to self-isolate, to the degree of preventing other household members.
But people still have to eat.
The City Hall has started a hotline that enables pensioners to phone in and depart orders. They still must pay for their shopping, but shipping is free of charge.
“It could be a little hard, somewhat hard for us, however, I am thankful to those younger girls that are helping me. I do not need to visit the supermarket, they have brought everything”
The effort will be very much a top-notch initiative as opposed to a grassroots one. The helpers are in the team Medical Volunteers.
