Founder Kim Whitaker says they have so far been able to place 205 healthcare workers across the country.

A platform has been built to link accommodation providers with healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ubuntu Beds gives healthcare workers at the frontline an option to stay closer to the hospitals where they're working and to help them avoid the risk of cross-infection in their homes.

Smaller guesthouses or apartments have really stepped up and said 'I want to help' and even though they are offering us rock-bottom prices, it is a little bit of an income for those accommodations.

It is free for healthcare workers because we are fundraising, so all the funds that we raise go towards the accommodation.
