Among the various tech4COVID19 initiatives, the new Help4COVID19 platform aims to act as a catalyst to help victims of the COVID-19 pandemic, seeking to forward requests to anyone who can respond quickly and appropriately to what is intended. All that is required is a registration on the website created for the platform, which aims to be simple and intuitive to use.
The tool works in a forum format and is free to use, allowing interaction and dialogue between the two parties, who needs support and who can help. If you need support, just fill out the Request Support form, giving the respective personal data to validate the registration. On the other hand, using a similar process, there are professionals and specialists who intend to provide specific assistance, be it installations, services, labor or the donation of goods.
In the section on the Support Projects website, you can find several solid initiatives already created in a pandemic environment, which arose with the aim of responding to different current problems. The information is updated on a daily basis, allowing you to consult who has a specific need and see if there is already an initiative that can solve your problem in progress.
According to Joo Neves, responsible for the project, Help4COVID19 aims to be a quick and effective response to requests for help, avoiding the bureaucratic issues that often make the support process quick. The platform accumulates professionals in different areas who take the time to find solutions to problems that arise on the platform.
Help4COVID19 is another aid from the tech4COVID19 movement, which currently has about 40 other projects to support the population affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
