First phone calls will be made on Saturday Aug 8th—after then a suitable day and time for calling will be determined between the volunteer and the elderly person they are supporting.

Description: With most of Hong elderly self-isolating, afraid and unable to leave their homes, help from the city’s volunteers is desperately needed to support the mental health of these vulnerable individuals. The effects of social isolation can include anxiety, depression, and even cognitive decline.
