“I care solely for my partner who has disabilities and is in the critical age group for coronavirus. We have no friends or family close by and I would be grateful if a volunteer could check in with us for peace of mind.”
“My husband died last year and I care alone for our high needs daughter. When there were two of us we could get through things together, but I am worried about the coming weeks. My mother is elderly and also needs moral support. I I like the idea of someone contacting me a few times a week.”
“I don’t have any family and live alone. Could wecare.kiwi help?”
“My family are deceased, and my neighbours are over 75 years of age and looking towards me to help them – I think I can cope but it would be nice for someone to stay in contact.”
