One of the volunteers, Daniel Go revealed in a Facebook post to a public freelancers group that the community is: “…currently working on a website where we can bring volunteers and elderly / immunocompromised people together, so we can actually help as many people in need as possible.”

The group, most of them foreigners residing in Malta have their eyes firmly set on the goal: “We will use this group to orchestrate the development / expansion of a software platform to actually have a leverage effect, which is FAR BIGGER than what every single one can actually achieve,” Daniel says, stressing that for Malta is their home. “We are in this together!” he stressed.

Daniel issues a call for volunteers with some coding expertise: “If anyone want to join our efforts to tackle the situation with software, please feel free to join our Invisible Hands Malta Group.”

Bridging the gap!

Explaining the reason behind the group’s name, Invisible Hands Malta, Daniel says: “We call ourselves invisible because, unfortunately, given what is known about COVID-19 we want to minimize as much direct contact in our deliveries as possible. In this incredibly isolating time we’re happy to provide you a connection,” he said.

 Lend a hand for this great cause if you can!
