Gewoon Mensen: Help your neighbours in the Netherlands
Over 20 Dutch cities are participating in a network of local help for those in need
What is the initiative?
People that are quarantined or may experience difficulties to leave their homes can register their need for help in their daily tasks, such as shopping or getting medicines. Volunteers are matched with those in need through their postcode, so everybody can act locally. The initiative has attracted over 36.000 volunteers in the Netherlands.
Additionally, everybody has access to a set of posters that can be placed in shops and residential buildings. This small gesture may help elderly citizens to learn about the platform.
