Story of Fighting COVID-19: "Town criers" in France unite the neighbor under quarantine
Valeria, Alex, and Saad are the residents of a community in Lyon, France. During the COVID-19 quarantine, they've noticed that some of their neighbors living alone need help in getting groceries and other things. To solve this, on the third day of the confinement, they voluntarily took on an old job —town criers, who used to make public announcements in the streets. Every night at 7 p.m., they gather under the apartments, playing music and collecting information about what people need. To their surprise, the residents highly appreciate their work and share many heartwarming words in support of people staying at home. Since then, this activity has become not just a platform to help neighbors, but also where people encourage each other.
