This has come about after they and others found that many seniors, the lonely and women did not have access to basic information, were not gadget-savvy and hence limited and felt lonely and were ill and trapped at home.
The group calls itself MYLAPORE COMMUNITY HELPLINE. Five women make this group.
Says Vallabha, a member of the group, ” The volunteers will attend phone calls from the people of Mylapore who may need assistance in issues related to the pandemic. We are open from 9 am to 7 pm. If one line is busy the other maybe tried. We will limit ourselves to basic help.”
