Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a Copenhagen non-profit initiative dubbed KOMAK (which is the Persian word for 'Help') is a new platform that helps connect 'healthy' volunteers with people in need. The volunteers can help with a range of tasks including picking up groceries, medication, and other day-to-day tasks.
KOMAK prioritizes safety and recommends all users follow the W.H.O. guidelines for health measures. The app includes instructions for users to follow that have been vetted by medical professionals to help reduce the risk of spreading infection.
While communities across the globe are already volunteering to help their neighbors, KOMAK is a global, centralized solution that enables a larger reach. The app is free to use and available for both iPhones and Androids.
