Article Featured Image

One of Malta’s leading student platforms, FreeHour, has teamed up with the island’s biggest educational institution for a major project set to support both the student and healthcare worker community.

The innovative mobile app idea which was started a few years back by young entrepreneur Zach Ciappara, has since evolved and grown into a platform of over 35,000 local youths and students, and they’ve now officially partnered up with the University of Malta for the 2021 season.

To celebrate the new collaboration, they are launching various campaigns promoting several subject matters, starting off with an awesome commemoration towards Health Care Workers, whilst also promoting a Student Solidarity Fund and Mental Health Awareness for students.

As the “voice for students in Malta”, FreeHour signed a partnership with the University of Malta rector. This signals exciting times for the organisation as well as their student community, who will be able to benefit from more official news from University, new collaborative content and even future app upgrades to FreeHour.

But these new campaigns will also prove how important it is for organisations to give back to the community who made them.

1. Thanking healthcare workers for their sacrifices. 

To thank healthcare workers for their incredible and selfless dedication during the pandemic, students from across all Malta were asked to donate items like flowers, personalised messages, and anything else that shows their respect and support to the hard-working community.

These flowers and cards were personally handed to frontliners at Mater Dei by the
FreeHour team, and a beautiful appreciation corner was also set up at University Gateway, in an effort to commemorate their work and put a smile on their faces – all on behalf of the student community.
FreeHour and University also displayed a huge banner with a beautiful message,
supporting their “last push” in this pandemic.

You can watch how everything went down here:

2. It doesn’t end there, with FreeHour and University of Malta also promoting a Student Solidarity Fund for those in need.

FreeHour provides constant support to Malta’s students, but they wanted to give
even more back this time and truly impact society.

The young team will be promoting University of Malta’s Student Solidarity Fund, which will be geared towards helping students who are in dire straits financially due to COVID-19.

These financial difficulties may be due to loss of earnings because of business closures, self-isolation or illness. If you’d like to be part of this & donate to the fund, you can send an SMS on the numbers below:

€2.33 – 5061 7316
€4.66 Euro – 5061 8101
€6.99 Euro – 5061 8812
€11.65 Euro – 5061 9246

The fund will be promoted over the course of summer & we encourage everyone to
help up out in any way they can! Every little bit helps.

3. Last but not least, this partnership will be seriously addressing student mental health in 2021.

FreeHour and University of Malta will be also be tackling students’ mental health, using its platform to create a series of compelling content, specifically promoting the importance of mental health. They will be sharing real student stories, providing tangible expert tips, and making accessible other crucial information with their students.

From financial issues to mental issues, this partnership is making it clear that they want to support Malta’s students, no matter what struggles they may be facing.
