The digital bank Timo has offered a solution to allow donors to financially support people affected by COVID-19 on Zalo Connect.

Under a project named “Surround yourself with green hopes”, users are able to transfer money quickly and conveniently to Zalo Connect via Timo digital bank.

Transfers can be made with a link that is used on Zalo Connect to support people in difficulty.

No account number is necessary, the bank said.

Zalo Connect has been set up amid the COVID-19 pandemic as a new tool permitting people in HCM City, Dong Nai, Binh Duong, and Long An to seek emergency support from the community for food, medicine and essential goods, and quickly connect with doctors or medical professionals for remote consultations.

As social distancing measures continue to be extended and the transport of goods on inter-district routes is limited, many donors have chosen to support their peers in difficulty with financial means.

As of September 9, nearly 40,000 people had joined Zalo Connect to support those in difficulty, with more than 100,000 orange dots turning green after receiving food and necessities.

About 92 per cent of requests for help were for essential food such as rice, eggs, meat, fish, vegetables, milk and bread, while the rest was for other necessities such as washing powder, toothpaste, electronic appliances, medicine and healthcare advice.

Besides practical and meaningful support activities such as fundraising, supporting and empowering medical staff, doctors and volunteers, campaigns like “Surround yourself with green hopes” have helped spread positive messages and energy through social networks and the community to help people overcome difficulties during the pandemic.
