Help us connect people during these unprecedented times As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, activating our Purpose to make an impact that matters is even more critical. Within the framework of well-being, mental resilience, and staying connected, we are launching a new initiative: Virtual Hugs.

With new visitor restrictions in place, the elderly in care centres and patients in hospitals are becoming more isolated from the outside world. Solitude is now a major issue, as many of them do not have access to smartphones or tablets to stay connected with others. In collaboration with the VUB and Close the Gap, Virtual Hugs provides mobile devices to those in need so they can keep in touch with their loved ones, alleviating the effects of loneliness.

Step up to the challenge

Register your daily steps on the Energise platform and for every 1,000km we step together, Deloitte will donate an extra device to care homes and hospitals across the country.
Collect as many steps as possible from Monday, 6 April to Sunday, 26 April and you’ll stay fit while helping people stay connected.  Visit the official website: www.virtualhugs.be to learn where you can donate smartphones and tablets to be recycled and redistributed. Share the #VirtualHugs hashtag on social media to inspire others to contribute to the cause!
