A local entrepreneur has launched an online tool to connect willing volunteers with vulnerable members of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Created by Sam Chandola, CovidHelper connects those with a high-risk of contracting COVID-19, such as seniors or those with pre-existing conditions, to volunteers who are willing to deliver supplies, such as groceries and medicine.

The service enables individuals to continue self-isolating and not risk being out in public in order to restock their essential supplies.

“I believe that human beings are largely good and want to help each other, especially in times of crisis,” Chandola told Vancouver is Awesome. “For every person who is profiteering from hoarding hand sanitizers, there are 10 out there who are willing to help.”
