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.
