Elena Akbash and her friend Semion in Gagauzia, Moldova, set up "Helping Hand", a network to help vulnerable people during quarantine. Elena set up the network because she had been helped in the past, and believes she must now do the same for others who are in need. Elderly who live alone and with mobility difficulties receive food packed by Elena and her group. Semion, a Marshrutka (routed taxi) driver, lends his vehicle to help make deliveries. Many elderly do not have enough money, with small pensions of only 1300 Moldovan lei (USD 79) to buy food. Many tear up when they see how their neighbours are willing to help them.
