Letters to the lonely set to deliver into the future
Originally Published by: The World Today
More than 3,500 Australians have signed up to write letters to strangers as part of an initiative to connect people who've been isolated during the pandemic.
The "Letterbox Project" began in western New South Wales, and it's now linking the isolated and the elderly with others across Australia.
The project will continue after the pandemic to support people who feel lonely or isolated.
